Over 10,000 trees to be relocated for road reconstruction
Over 10,000 trees at Sanya’s three main road sections – Yuya Road, Fenghuang Road and Yingjie Road will be relocated for the road upgrade. The road upgrades are aimed at building Sanya into an international coastal boutique tourist city.
In order to ensure the trees’ survival, the Municipal Bureau of Parks and Gardens of Sanya will dispatch a professional team to help reduce damage to the trees during the transplantation.
But local arborists said some trees and shrubs are not suitable for relocation and may get irrevocably damaged in the moving process.
The trees will be transplanted to minor roads and streets, namely Hailong Road in the Sanya Bay area.
After constructionon, the three road sections will be planted with new trees that have good wind-shielding and shading effects such as palm plants.
