ISA HK/China --- Message form ISA President - elect

Dear Station Members,

Below is a message received from the ISA President-elect Mr. Lauren Lanphear by this Station earlier today. It is full of encouragement & appreciation of the arboricultural development in our territory. Mr. Lanphear is also deeply interested in our culture & has been to China some 26 years ago. This is exciting news indeed.

Our Station is proud to be contacted by the ISA President-elect who has shown his beloved care & concern about our development. We sincerely wish to see the expected visit of Mr. Lanphear come true very soon to our territory, & we hope to prepare ourselves & our trees for it. Having the next ISA President to be interested in our culture & our region is certainly a bonus for all of us. When the ISA President can come to HK, the media will follow & we shall receive support, although we do not know what to show the world really.

Our Station wishes to thank Mr. Lanphear for his loving attention for us & we look forward to receiving him in our territory soonest.

Thank you, Mr. Lanphear.

best regards,

Sammy Au
Station Manager

Subject: Hong Kong ISA & Tree Climbing Jamboree

Sammy,Congratulations on your 1st Climbing Jamboree to be held at the Fung Kai School in Hong Kong on Saturday January 20th! How very exciting.My wife, Susan, and I visited China, including Hong Kong over 26 years ago, in 1980. At the time, we were only 24 & 23 years old, and had been married only 2 years. What an incredible time to have visited China. Since travel to China for US citizens had really only opened up in 1972, our visit in 1980 saw a China that had had very little interaction with the western world for many decades. As you well know, things have changed dramatically since then.

As president-elect of the ISA, I have been impressed with the efforts of you and other Hong Kong arborists to bring ISA to China. In particular, your & Kevin Eckert's activities with ISA Certification and the Tree Climbing Jamboree are tremendous. Since its founding over 82 years ago, the ISA has maintained a consistent emphasis on research, education and the exchange of ideas. With the building of a strong relationship between ISA and Hong Kong's arborists, this brings an even broader global scope to the research, education, and exchange of ideas.

Over those 82+ years the ISA has been consistent in its mission, "Through research, technology, and education promote the professional practice of arboriculture and foster a greater public awareness of the benefits of trees." This is a truly great accomplishment and is a tribute to the dedicated and committed involvement of ISA's members and leadership over the years. You, and the rest of Hong Kong's arborists, ISA Certified Arborists, and ISA members are now part of those dedicated and committed members!

Please pass along my personal congratulations and words of encouragement to your colleagues.If, during the remaining months of my term as ISA President-elect, or anytime during my 2-year term as ISA President that begins in August '07, I can be of assistance to your efforts in any manner, please don't hesitate to call upon me. It would certainly be an honor and privilege for me to attend and possible speak at one of your conferences during the next 2 1/2 years.

My trip to China in 1980 ignited in me a life-long interest in your part of the world. It would be so very exciting to see the many changes, and especially to visit with Hong Kong arborists (something that I did not do back in 1980).Again, congratulations on your inaugural Tree Climbing Jamboree this Saturday. I wish only the best for it.

Very sincerely yours,

LaurenMr. Lauren S. Lanphear, President-electInternational Society of Arboriculture And President Forest City Tree Protection Co., Inc.
