Rare Trees Cut Down by Accident

Date Posted: 2001-03-16

Two endangered species of tree, Taiwan Tick Clovers, have been cut down by mistake in Naha. The trees growing on the shore of Man lake in Naha City were cut down by a company clearing weeds in the area. Its workers thought the roots of the trees were damaging concrete protecting the lakeshore.

Keiko Kinjo, a head of the Okinawa Environment Club in Naha said “The height of one of the trees cut down was about four meters. They were great trees to teach lake ecology to children. We are very disappointed.” The group had been working on planting and protecting the rare trees on the water’s edge.

Taiwan Tick Clover, as an endangered species, is registered in Okinawa Prefecture Red Data Book.

The company apologized for its mistake.
