About the Arboriculture Training Session
The Big Trees project in collaboration with the faculty of architecture, Thammasat University, is an initiative program that aims to helps people understand conserve the natural beauty of urban Bangkok. Using knowledge from expert Arborists, the program aims to educate people living in Bangkok to become the part of creating green city. Presently, Bangkok has about 3 million trees around the city but there is only 180 arborists taken care of the Bangkok’s trees.
How does the project address the issue?
Pollution is a pivotal issue in Thailand, especially in Bangkok which there are many issues that are harmful to people such as stress, health issues and etc. The main suggestion from the Big trees project is to protect Bangkok by conserving the trees that we currently have and instigate new progress towards planting more trees in the city. The benefits are countless since one big tree can help reduce pollution in the atmosphere, decrease dust particle levels, and even produce O2 back into the atmosphere. Hence, Big trees project, in collaboration with Thammasat University, has launched an Arborist training program to improve awareness surrounding the overall benefits of this program and to attract people who love trees to take action in the protection of Bangkok’s green spaces. Additionally, another central goal of the program is to facilitate the creation of advanced arborists training program so that members of the community can look after Bangkok’s trees.
