A news conference said yesterday that Shandong will bring the Measures for the Protection of Ancient and Rare Trees (the Measures for short) into force from July 1 this year. The Measures contains clear provisions for the protection of ancient and famous trees, and stipulates that the nearby conservation personnel will be determined in accordance with the principle of local management.

Sun Chengwen, a second-level inspector of the Legislative Affairs Office of Shandong Province, introduced that the ancient and rare trees are large in number and widely distributed.

If the caretakers for the conservation of ancient and famous trees are not determined, the conservation measures will be difficult to implement and then the protection of those trees will be difficult to carry out effectively.

Therefore, the caretakers of ancient and rare trees will be determined locally or nearby in line with the principle of local management for better protecting the trees.

According to the Measures, the competent department of the ancient and rare trees at county level should sign a conservation agreement with the caretakers, specifying the conservation responsibilities, requirements, and award and penalty measures, and give appropriate allowance to the caretakers.

The Measures also encourages the society to donate funds to protect and adopt the ancient and rare trees.
