In conjunction with the “Trees for Life” Art Exhibition held in Jurong West Public Library from 21 July to 12 August 2012, join us for a talk about the Heritage Trees of Singapore. These are trees of special historical, botanical, social, cultural and/or aesthetic value in society. Through this talk, learn interesting facts about some of these majestic trees which represent the rich natural heritage of Singapore and our roots as a tropical rainforest.
