Readers who like to visit Huey Teng Tao with its ornamental dam 12 km north of Chiang Mai along te Irrigation Canal Rd may not have seen recent destruction of forest there.

In January an area of young forest which had been planted over a period of 4 years by various school groups was bulldozed in order to make a car park for a 3 day music event.

As a result many trees died but a good number have resprouted and are now being swamped with weed growth.

Thick tree planting by the water's edge, foreground bulldozed flatThe gap on the right was formerly thick with trees

Students from CMU Engineering faculty have been asked to come and help hand weed the small Mimosa and other American weeds and all comers are welcome. Please bring gardening gloves, drinking water and a sickle if possible.
