会员们:

当此会讯被送出之时, 本分会已经是九岁了。 在这九个年头, 我们把樹艺行业从零产生到现在的蓬勃狀况, 把国外的樹艺师牌照制度引进, 积极地利用与传媒的良好关系去向公众推广樹艺知识, 积极地与海内外樹艺组织建立兄弟关係, 努力地把樹艺知识向台湾和国内推广, 我们的成绩是有目共睹, 我们的努力并没有白费。

在攀树方面, 本分会属下的 "香港樹木学会" 积极地每周都在香港举办训练活动, 亦每年举办 "香港樹木攀爬锦标赛, 至今, 香港攀树人已有数千之众, 传媒争相报导攀树热潮 (http://the-sun.on.cc/cnt/lifestyle/20130320/00484_005.html?facebook=y  ), 而攀树活动也静悄悄地漫延到两岸四地。

在本分会长的领导下, 本分会专业、清廉, 我们从來不打着总会的旗号去推销什么训练, 从不挂著总会的名义去招揽生意, 由本分会去承办的 "樹木讲座", 收费仅够成本, 而在香港以外的一般都不收费。 本分会的所有工作人员都是志願工, 连海外出差的费用都要自付。 本分会就是这样子长大的, 会员人數也从 2004年的一人, 发展到了今天的 2,200人以上, 会员清单从不公开 (连总会都没有), 令本分会无论从架构与性质方面, 都与其他分部分会不同。

在ISA的架构里, 主要是分成 "分部" (Chapter) 和 "分会" (Association Organization") 兩种组织, 前者在组成和方向都受到总会严控, 后者则只是轻轻地挂著总会的名牌而已, 内部架构和发展方向可以完全独立。 有鉴于大中华地区的文化、语言、历史和政治架构, 都与总会和各分部的 "西方议会式大民主" 做法非常不同, 所以本分会一直都情愿挂靠为 "分会" 而矣, 以求全同异的方法, 保存自我的独立自主。 为此, 本分会长曾开罪了不少洋人和香港人, 他也是国际上被投诉得最多的樹艺会领导者, 差不多每个月都有。

为了让本地人能谋取最大利益, 本分会曾經提出过要翻绎牌照知识, 和要把樹艺师牌照中文化。 但可能由於老外不懂中文, 故此事一直都搁在 "讨论" 当中, 最近甚至乎提都不愿意再提。 当本分会要自办本地牌照的時候, 外來的阻力就更大, 常常令到本分会长感到寸步难行, 非常沮喪。 虽知香港只是唯一在大中华地区会讲英语的城市, 而且也不是人人会讲, 在大中华地区不采用当地语言去推教如此新的知识, 几乎是不可能的事。 如果每事都要请求 "外国专家" 前來用英语授课咨询, 在费用和翻绎上也非常困难。 目前本分会内已是人才济济, 分会长的牌照也比许多洋人为高, 干吗还要找外援去推授基础知识 ?

在今天的香港, 正有一批人在努力的为总会在香港來搞一个 "分部"。 在他们当中, 有洋人、政府官员和高级經理, 他们的官方语言是英语, 他们也不参加本分会的活动。 由于成立 "香港分部" 是总部和这批人所控制的事情, 所以当这个 "香港分部" 成立之日, 也正是本分会脱离总会的一天。 本分会已通过内部讨论, 决定在脱离总会当天, 我们马上改名成为 "中华樹艺师学会" (China Arborist Association, CAA) , 会务和所有一切不变, 会员制度和发展方向不变, 更多详情将会在改名前后相继公布, 敬请各分会员留意。

本分会是在完全没有政府支持、没有资金、只有当地人的努力和汗水和无私奉献之下, 由一个人开始一点一滴地建立起來, 至今已經是全亚洲最大和牌照最高的树艺机构, 而一直都在澎涨之中。 我们从來都以本地人的利益作为出发点去凌驾一切, 這就是我们能够发展起來的道理。 但愿我们在目前转营当中能够坚定不移, 奋勇前进, 一起为大中华地区的树艺行业发展出一分力, 此乃是我中华民族之福祉也 !

谨此致意!

Dear Station Members,

By the time this Station Mail is released, ISA HK/China (The Station) is already 9 years old.

Throughout the 9 years, we have built the Arborist Profession in HK from scratch to an industry. ISA Credentials are now written in Govt Contracts in HK. Arborists are employed for tree work & assessment. Our Station Mail bears influence to Govt policies on tree affairs in HK, Macau, Taiwan & China (see attached). The Station receives calls from public on knowledge enquiries practically everyday.

Outside of HK, we run seminars & tree climbing demonstrations in Taiwan & China regularly. We have managed to work hand in hand with the China state media to promote the Arborist Profession. Our name means Modern Arboriculture in China, & we are never challenged there by anybody, even in the academic world.

The Station now runs the biggest ISA exams in our territory (120 seats for the Certified Arborist, & 20 seats for the CTW). Certified Arborist exam & Certified Tree Worker exam are organized twice a year on a regular basis. We have built up a team of proctors & evaluators to an international quality. We run TCHK as our training arm without directly engaging our proctors or evaluators in it to avoid the Conflict of Interest. TCHK runs the HKTCC every year under our careful supervision. HKTCC is now the biggest tree climbing event in the Far East with thousands of spectators.

In the 9 years, Station Membership has grown from just one person to the now 2,200+ no. to spread all over our territory. In the past year alone, more than 500 no. joined. We are now receiving Station Membership application from Taiwan & China, which now makes up around 10% of the total membership. Around 20% of the Station Members are also ISA Members. Approximately half of the Station Membership speak English, with the rest in Cantonese or Mandarin. We credit our non-disclosure policy of our Station Membership as the success of our growth. It is also against the HK Privacy Law to disclose it in public anyway.

Under ISA governance & policies, we are an Association Organization (AO) to enjoy the relative independence of our existence. We've been doing our work for ISA with marked results, but we have also resisted to become a Chapter, since our current structure & resources cannot meet the requirements. Now there is a group in HK who has formed to follow the ISA requirements to become a chapter. They consist of Govt officials & high managers in various organizations. They are well versed in western voting processes & all speak English, although they do not participate in our activities at large. Many of them are strangers to our Station Members.

Forming a chapter in HK is the desire of this group & very likely they will get it. Upon the formation of the "ISA HK Chapter" perhaps in the next few months, our Station will depart form ISA & rename ourselves as the China Arborist Association (CAA) to continue our current course. We shall work along with the future "ISA HK Chapter" as it is an ISA Organization, but we shall not promote ourselves with the name of ISA anymore. We shall also hand over all our ISA duties such as running exams, managing CEU & answering public enquiries on ISA, to the future "HK Chapter" for them to carry on.

Our Station began from just one person without any Govt support, without resources & without finance to grow into today. We rely on the enthusiasm & selfless devotion of our Station Members to achieve successes. Many Station Members have quietly contributed without asking anything in return. We give credits to all these hidden heroes for their good work, & we shall always remember them. As we shall now face yet another challenge ahead of us, we shall prepare ourselves for it. Our Station has been sailing on uncharted waters for many years to come to today. We are confident that we shall do well to continue. Time will tell, & history will judge.

More information on the transition into the China Arborist Association will be released as time goes along. We have a set of plans, but would prefer to wait till the HK Chapter is formed to announce. Our intention to focus on developing the Arborist Profession in our territory of HK, Macau, Taiwan & China, & to prevail the interest of our Station Members, will always remain unchanged. This is how we shall be supported.

Thank you all for your help & support in all these years, & we love you here always.

best regards,
