藝術家翻閱政府的百年植林歷史年鑑,發現馬尾松樹曾是植林的主要樹木,每年曾以數十萬被種植,遍布香港大小水塘和郊野,可惜因蟲害及種植政策改變而逐漸消失。藝術家決定遊走各大水塘,嘗試尋找這些仍存留的馬尾松,發現漫山綠林原來是無數代種植者的努力成果。

From reading the Hong Kong Botanical and Afforestation Department report, the artist discovered a local plant named Pinus Massoniana had been massively, systematically planted across Hong Kong country-side territories, especially around the reservoirs since 1880. However, due to the serious pests problem and planting policies changes, Pinuses were being cut-and-burned and disappeared gradually from the mountains. Artist has walked along multiple reservoirs, trying to find the remained Pinuses and unfold the planting history contributed by generations.
