Transplanting Exercise #1

Date: Saturday, 20th May 2017
Time: 0900 – 1700
Venue: Taman Tugu park site

As part of the overall conservation and preservation efforts on the future Taman Tugu park site, a series of transplanting exercises will be conducted in collaboration with the Malaysian Nature Society (“MNS”).

The transplanting exercise entails carefully extracting plants (such as shrubs, ornamental trees and offspring from other trees) which were not identified by the Forest Research Institute of Malaysia (“FRIM”) to be preserved on site and transferring them to nurseries where they will be sorted, cared for and allocated into the following categories:

  • Type-A: To be transplanted back into the Taman Tugu park site upon completion
  • Type-B: To be transplanted to other public parks/ nurseries
  • Type-C: To be given away for private gardens

The transplanting exercise will be conducted in batches based on the overall development plan of the Taman Tugu park site.

The exercise commenced today on the new Surau Jumaat grounds (approximately 3-acres) with the help of dedicated Kelab Pencinta Alam volunteers from Sekolah Menengah Darul Ehsan, Universiti Putra Malaysia, International Islamic University Malaysia, Universiti Tenaga Nasional and Universiti Malaya.

We look forward to collaborating with other schools and societies for future transplanting exercises.
