Abstract

In recent years, the Government of the HKSAR has updated its policy to improve urban greenery and landscaping. According to the greening plan of the Greening, Landscape, and Tree Management Section (GLTMS) under the Development Bureau, there are new requirements in place to provide a minimum of 20-30% of greenery to both government and private developments. Hence, the demand for landscape and horticultural management, in particular aspects related to arboricultural maintenance and management, has increased largely. At present, there are no University Grants Committee (UGC) funded degree programmes in horticulture and landscape management studies. The Technological and Higher Education Institute of Hong Kong (THEi) offers bachelor degree and in-service training programmes that are professionally and vocationally oriented. The Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Horticulture and Landscape Management programme continues this tradition and is offered to meet the manpower demand for the horticulture, arboriculture and landscape industry in Hong Kong.
