Singapore Botanic Garden

Well, I wasn't able to find a similar thread and surely such a beautiful place deserves a thread, so... (I'm very sorry if a thread with the same subject has already existed)



















At least the ugly pics above can give viewers a hint of what you can expect there.... I hope

SINGAPORE: Singapore's National Heritage Board (NHB) and National Parks Board (NParks) have invited the public to provide their feedback on Singapore's bid for the Singapore Botanic Gardens to be nominated as its first UNESCO World Heritage Site.

From now to December 2013, members of the public will be able to contribute feedback to the Nomination Dossier, which will eventually be submitted to the World Heritage Committee by February 1, 2014.

The committee will then deliberate on the nomination and decide if the Gardens will be inscribed as a World Heritage Site.

The Botanic Gardens was chosen for submission because it fulfills the criteria of having outstanding universal value.

Acting Minister for Culture, Community and Youth Lawrence Wong said rubber seeds grown in the garden propelled the growth of the rubber industry, and the development of Singapore from a fishing village to one of the world's busiest ports in the 20th century.

Conducted in two stages, the public can contribute feedback on two key documents within the Nomination Dossier: the Nomination Document, and the Site Management Plan.

From now, the public will be able to comment on the Nomination Document, which provides supporting evidence on how the Singapore Botanic Gardens fulfils UNESCO's inscription criteria.

And from November to December, views will be sought on the Site Management Plan, which outlines how the Gardens will be managed if successfully inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Where possible, relevant feedback and information gathered from the public consultation process will be included in the Nomination Document.

The consultation process marks the culmination of a wider engagement on the nomination since 2010, when the government started its engagement of a number of stakeholders, such as the Singapore Heritage Society and the Nature Society (Singapore).

Underlining the importance placed on public consultations, Ms Jean Wee, director of the preservation of sites and monuments at NHB said, "The Singapore Botanic Gardens has been, and continues to be an important site of memory, and we would very much appreciate Singaporeans contributing their input in ways that they feel will support its successful inscription."

Dr Nigel Taylor, director of the Singapore Botanic Gardens, also hoped that members of the public would contribute historical information and ideas about the Botanic Gardens, which could also be used to make the heritage tours of the Gardens more meaningful for visitors.

Members of the public will be able to view the documents, and submit their views at www.sbg.org.sg/unesco. The Nomination Document will also be available for viewing at the three Visitor Information Counters at the Gardens.

The Botanic Gardens is currently on UNESCO's list of "tentative sites". If successful, it will join 981 sites worldwide that are recognised by UNESCO as having "outstanding universal value". - CNA/fa/ac

New support for Tembusu tree at S'pore Botanic Gardens
By Reshma Ailmchandani
POSTED: 27 May 2014 21:53


The iconic Tembusu tree at the Singapore Botanic Gardens now has better support for its low hanging branch.

SINGAPORE: The iconic Tembusu tree at the Singapore Botanic Gardens now has better support for its low hanging branch.

The branch used to be supported by a pair of wooden props, making it static. Over time, the tree could lose its ability to bear its own weight, if it were still under static support.

However, a team from NParks and ST Kinetics came up with a new, dynamic system which supports the branch and allows it to move and grow.

President Tony Tan Keng Yam received a demonstration of the new support system.

The new support will enable the branch to move naturally under varying wind conditions while still providing full support.

As the support allows the branch to be moved, new tissues can grow to strengthen the branch.

The system was built with easily available off-the-shelf parts and materials.

Citing his own memories of the tree, President Tan said he hopes it will be preserved for generations to come.

He said: "It is part of our history, it is part of our heritage. The fact that it's over 150 years old, it has seen the growth of many generations of Singaporeans and we have to keep it that way, because this sort of thing cannot be manufactured. It has to be preserved."
