ISA HK/China --- Urban trees of Osaka, Kyoto & Kobe in Japan as seen in July 2012 日本大阪、京都、神户树木之旅

会员们:

本分会长趁著参加 "日本语研习班" 之便,在今年的六、七月份到了日本的大阪府、京都市和神户市跑了一圈,也顺道观察一番此等地方的树木种植,详情可溜览附上的图片。分会长自修日本语已长达十年之久,为了的是个人兴趣,他现在已能解读日本报刊书籍, 日本语是他所学习的第四种语言。

日本是第二次世界大战的战败国,大阪等城市在战争中几乎被美军的燃烧弹移为平地,现在所看见的树木种植,差不多都是近五十年来的事情。 大阪神户地区在1996年的 7.6级 "阪神大地震" 当中也受到不少破坏,但在这几天的旅程当中, 分会长所见到的都是完整的城市建设, 所谓受到的地震影响差不多是眇无痕跡。

从外表看来,阪神地区的树木种植,与华东地区非常相似,使用的品种也是香樟、朴树和银杏等普通品种,但在质量和密度方面,日本的似乎略胜一筹。 在修剪方面,日方也喜欢采用大面积切口和重剪,但是使用吊针来输送营养液等就没有被看见到。 在日本的神道教思想, 老树大树都有神灵存在, 加上日本民众普遍迷信, 所以在许多的老树旁边都有供奉谟拜的场所, 假如树体上长了一个洞, 那是不可思议的事情, 一定要马上填上, 并把它粉饰还原到本来样子,做这种工艺的人, 在日本叫做 "树医", 他是一个艺术、宗教和技能的综合者, 与我们所认识的只讲科研、不讲其他的 "树艺师" 非常不同。

从本分会长所看到的, 树艺行业在日本会有很大的发展空间, 但与在中国地区一样, 语言将会是最大的屏障, 可能日本需要一位懂得良好英语, 拥有实战经验和各种树艺技能的专家, 来帮忙日本去建立其树艺行业,但如此的人, 在日本目前可能还没有。

看来中华地区会比日本在发展树艺行业要先走一步, 本分在这方向上将会不遗馀力。

谨此致意!

Dear Station Members,

The Station Manager (SM) visited Osaka, Kyoto & Kobe in Japan for a language refreshment course during end-June/early-July Period. He has been studying Japanese for some years on an on & off basis & out of interest. The SM can read & understand a Japanese newspaper, although he cannot speak it too well so far. Japanese language is the 4th language he is trying to master, & he has got all the time in the world for it.
As said in previous Station Mail, whenever the SM goes, trees are always on his menu. In Japan, this is no exception. Everywhere his study group would go, the SM will take the limited time to photo & study the tree care practices in Japan. The attached photos have shown some of his work.

In the cities where the SM has been, the greening was practically done after the heavy bombing of the Second World War. Most of the urban trees seen were younger trees of less than 50 years old. They were about the sizes as those commonly seen in most China cities. City trees usually have a space problem for canopy & underground expansion. Japan trees appear to follow that pattern, since land is scarce in a country with 120 million population, but under the size of Sichuan Province in China.

Heavy pruning is commonly practiced among urban trees in Japan to create large wounds. The species used are commonly seen in many China cities, including Camphor, Celtis & Ginko. Tree quality is good. Very few pest problems were detected. Tree care in Japan is done to an international level.

Japan has their own "Tree Doctor Association" to care for their trees. Tree climbing is uncommon used for pruning, but rather with scaffolding. Trees in Japan are regarded as God, & many local shrines & altars were set up near the mature trees to worship the Tree God. As God is divine, anything done with harm to him is inconceivable. This may be why trees in Japan are dressed up with rattan ropes & propped for support very commonly before winter. It would be quite a scene for western arborists to see.

In the view of the SM, Japan is ready for ISA. However, the language is a big issue. Protectionism among the existing profession, like the Tree Doctors, may be another issue. Japan may need someone who is fluent in both English & Japanese, knowledgeable & respected enough to translate the information to deliver to the local arborists, like in ISA HK/China. This would not be easy.

We look forward to seeing Japan joining the ISA global family one day. We hope this day can be close.
