記者從重慶市綠化委員會獲悉,從今年起,重慶市將連續三年、每年投入300萬元古樹保護專項資金,繼續加大對古樹名木的保護力度。

Southwest China's Chongqing Municipality has established special funds to protect old trees. From this year, the forestry department will invest 3 million yuan ($463,000) for three years consecutively to strengthen protection of old and precious trees in Chongqing.

重慶市林業局副局長唐軍說,去年重慶在全市範圍內開展古樹名木資源普查,邀請專家對古樹名木進行鑒定,完成2萬餘株古樹名木登記備案。

Tang Jun, deputy director of the municipal forestry department, said an investigation of ancient and precious trees was carried out in Chongqing last year, with more than 20,000 trees registered.

同時,為進一步充實古樹保護資金,提高社會各界保護古樹意識,重慶市綠化委員會還開展了古樹認養活動,推出323株100至800樹齡的古樹面向社會各界籌集保護資金。其中,一級古樹認養費用為每年每株1500元,最低認養費用為500元。認養費由認養人交付給管護責任單位或責任人,認養人可以在樹上刻下自己的名字,或者懸掛帶有姓名的牌子。

To raise people's awareness of protecting old trees, local greening committee has conducted the "adoption" of old trees. A total of 323 old trees, aging from 100 years to 800 years, can be "adopted" by people, enterprises and organizations. Adoption fees for each old tree, ranging from 500 to 1,500 yuan (first-class old trees) per year, are for forest rangers to manage and protect the trees. Adopters can have their names printed on a plate and hung on the trees, and are granted a tree adoption certificate.

It is the first time that Chongqing made such kind of policy and set up special funds for old trees.
