Nature lovers can be thankful perhaps that so much of Hong Kong is either inconvenient to get to or not so easy to build on. There are more than 260 outlying islands, not forgetting the hills and mountains. This largely explains why 40% of Hong Kong’s land mass is occupied by country parks and nature reserves. Bureaucrats however seem to see the heart of the city as a nature free zone. Even the country parks sprout concrete paths and other parks have a long list of rules seemingly designed as a barrier to recreation. And on the rare occasion that a tree falls down, this collapse results in a massacre of dozens of other “killer trees”. After the collapse of one roof at City University, there are worries that green roofs could be the next feature to become the victim of excessive zeal. In 1984 the Buildings Department began introducing guidelines for access facilities in neighbourhoods and buildings, aimed at creating a barrier-free environment for people with physical disabilities. But here we are, more than thirty years later, and things have improved somewhat, but not as much as they might have.
