ISA HK/China --- South China Agricultural University visit (華南农业大學樹藝之旅)

本分会在2012年11月下旬, 在通过 "中国地球之友" 的友情安排, 成功的在广州华南农业大学 (华农大) 里, 举办了一次介绍樹艺行业和 ISA 的讲座, 到场聆听的有150位以上当地的专家教授和毕业生。 此次乃是本分会第一次成功的在国内著名学府里举办推介樹艺行业的讲座, 本分会长是抱着战战惊惊的态度前往附会。
华农大号称是国内第二大的农业大学, 也是广东省最古老的大学, 成立于1909年, 占地 8250亩, 是前由广东省政府和中国农业部共同管理的农业专科大学。 目前國內许多園林部门的主管, 曾都是华农大的毕业生, 可见此大学在培养园林专才当中, 有着举足轻重的领导地位。 是次演讲的对象主要是修学林业系的教授专才们, 因为树艺行业对他们來说, 是比较接近的一个行业, 虽然一个讲在山上, 则另一个在城市, 但总比其他那些搞什麼设计、什麼生产的为好。
在讲座当中, 年轻的参会者问得最多的并非技术问题, 而是假如他们考获了 "注册树艺师" 牌照以后, 出路会是怎麼样和收入是多少, 为此本分会长一一耐心作答。 为了測试一位代表樹艺行业人员的真正实干能力, 大会特別准备了十多桢广州樹木經常碰到的问题和照片, 來给本分会长评阅。 在事前毫無準備的情況下, 本分会长一一详细的解释了所见到的樹木缺陷、诱因和可行的解决方案, 赢得了全场不少的掌声雷动。
經过这次双方的亲切交流, 本分会已与华农大相约好, 会在四/五月份在大学里举辦一次全广州的樹艺行业研讨会, 届时本分会将会派出經验丰富的讲者和攀樹专家前往参加。 为了令此次会议能令更多人参与, 本分会将会把其当作为一次 "ISA 树木讲座", 除了给予 CEU 以外, 也会同时搞一次半天的 "广州古樹游", 鼓励所有本分会的会员自由参加。
是次华农大之旅, 也鼎力得到广州數个国營媒体的大力支持, 把与分会长的访问公开播放, 令全广东省的人民都知道是次造访, 这令我方感激不已 !
但愿是次广州之行能更燃起国内同行对樹艺行业产生更多兴趣； 为此目的, 本分会将会努力不懈, 再接再厲。

Dear Station Members,
In November 2011, through the kind help of Friends of the Earth of China, ISA HK/China has successfully been invited to deliver a seminar on the Arborist Profession & ISA in the South China Agricultural University (SCAU) in Guangzhou. This is a major breakthrough for us in our development in Southern China. We have tried many times in the past to approach this oldest university of the Guangdong Province. This time, we were invited to speak to their 150+ professors & graduates from he Forestry Dept for one afternoon. We were overwhelmed.
SCAU was set up in 1909 by the Guangdong Provincial Govt to develop contemporary agriculture in the then backward China. The university has a total area of 550 hectares, & has by now transformed to give all disciplines relating to the Green Industry in Southern China. Many Landscape Bureau chiefs all across China are graduates of this university, & SCAU has a huge impact on tree planting in China.
The Station Manager (SM) Sammy Au gave a 2 hour talk in Mandarin on the general aspects of the Arborist Profession in Asia, & touched briefly on the knowledge of modern arboriculture to the audience. Since modern arboriculture has not really started in China, & silviculture & arboriculture have their differences, the SM was speaking in a tone good enough for laymen to understand, & had explained the terms with facts to make the talk interesting & convincing. This has won many rounds of applause.
Then came in the middle of the talk with the host putting up slides of their trees in problem, without the prior knowledge of the SM beforehand. The SM knew that this was to test out the knowledge of a representative from the Arborist Profession. After all in China, it's no good to just talk, talk & talk. With the qualifications & experiences of the SM, he had answered every photo shown up & explained in details every defects so encountered. He also suggested the cause of the problems & offered workable solutions. This has fully convinced the audience of the abilities of a Practicing Arborist, as well as China needs modern arboriculture to help their trees.
As the visit has been so successful that both sides agreed to bring our Station Staff & Station Members up to SCAU for a bigger exchange. This is now scheduled around April/May of 2013, & ISA HK/China will turn it into an "ISA HK/China Tree Seminar" with CEU to be held in Guangzhou. There will also be an attached visit to see the Old & Valuable Trees in Guangzhou on the day before or after the seminar. We shall open this to all our Station Members.
The SM was also interviewed by several State Media of the China Central Govt Publicity Bureau during this trip, & it was broadcast within the Guangdong Province. In a way, we are now accepted & approved by the China Govt to promote our mission & objectives. This is very good news indeed.
Looking forward to informing you all on the coming SCAU seminar once all the arrangements are made.
