A rescue squad is taking the Thai capital's much-loved large trees to a safe new home in the city if they are at risk of falling or being cut down.

BANGKOK, July 18, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- THE FORESTIAS by MQDC (Magnolia Quality Development Corporation Limited), a world-first integration of nature and community redefining happiness with 'Imagine Happiness' concept, set up a 'Forest Rescue' team to offer a lifeline for Bangkok's large trees which are often treasured as neighborhood landmarks yet can fall victim to the city's development.

The story of Forest Rescue, based on a true story of a large rain tree once at Soi Ladprao 110, illustrates an overlooked bond between humans and trees.  The original owner wanted to build a house extension so the tree was carefully transplanted as a balled-and-burlapped plant to THE FORESTIAS

Mrs. Sasinan Allmand, MQDC's, Executive Vice President for Corporate Marketing and Communications, said: "Our 'For All Well-Being' philosophy is about caring for both humankind and nature. About 500 trees are cut down each second so this is the right time to preserve green ecosystems especially in Bangkok where there are currently only 6 square meters of green space for each inhabitant.

The 'FOREST RESCUE' campaign to save trees in and around Bangkok is now underway as part of our flagship project 'THE FORESTIAS'. When trees are at risk of falling or being cut down, we aim to move them to a safer place in the city, where they can flourish and be cared for. A squad of ecologists and tree experts -- the 'Forest Rescue Team' -- is now on call, responding to alerts from the public. They will travel the city with a truck and crane to relocate trees to a 4,800 sqm park at 'THE FORESTIAS'. Each tree we save will be labeled with its original location, so those who grew up around it can reconnect. We will welcome the public to explore the area and relax and learn without any entry fee."
