Taipei, June 17 (CNA) A township office in the central county of Nantou announced Wednesday its
plan to recruit volunteers to help carry out surveys and take care of trees in the township during summer.
Those interested in the project are required to join a three-day training camp from June 24-26 to learn about ways and means to save, trim, preserve and care for trees, said Chen Chi-heng (陳紀衡), head of Jiji Township Office.
After completing training, they can work just one day or up to two months, as volunteers in the township from July 1 to Aug. 31, Chen said.
Volunteers will be divided into two groups, with one group responsible for counting, locating and categorizing trees, and the other for revitalizing tree roots, and fertilizing and watering the trees, he said. [FULL STORY]
