The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) has planned to invest Bt30 million in planting 100,000 trees this year in an effort to increase the capital city’s green space.

 

BMA deputy permanent secretary Wiparat Chaiyanukij said the project – now submitted for the governor's approval for the required budget – will be divided into two batches. 

 

The first batch of 50,000 trees requiring Bt5 million would be planted at public parks and state offices.

 

The second batch of 50,000 trees requiring Bt25 million would be planted by 50 district offices on land plots of private organisations, temples, schools, and along the Bang Khun Thien coast.

 

Currently, Bangkok City has 20,000 rai (3,200 hectares) of green space in the form of public parks and gardens, a ratio of 6.2 square metres per head, below the World Health Organisation’s standard of 9 square metres per head.

 

The BMA has been implementing three solutions to boost green space, including finding empty lands under its care to be turned into space for public use, increasing the number of parks beyond the current 35 public parks, and encouraging the private sector to add greenery to their properties and to support the BMA’s attempts to increase green space in general.

...and save the mature trees that are already in the city and always hire real “tree trimmers”- not cheap labor from Isaan that only know how to hack a tree with a hatchet.

300 baht per tree.  You don't get teak trees for that.

 

Calculator broken?

I'm all for it. Next step. Put a seating bench under the trees so people can have a place to sit down and get out of the sun without having to go into an expensive coffee shop.

For those prices they should make it 1 million trees, for once do something properly and outstanding. Planting trees until it is green everywhere.

This would be the same as the Thais (where ever they're coming from) are doing it. If they want a real tree trimmer, they'll have to import one from the west, or maybe from Japan.
