What is the significance of the rock on the Wilson Trail (Hong KONG trail) inscribed with the words, “ 1963 Pinus Elliottii”?

Answer the question

1 answer

From my understanding, it is inscribed to mark the enrichment plan, by the agricultural department, to plant more trees, notably the pinus Elliottii, which increases the species diversity and prevents soil erosion.

However, I am likely to be wrong, historians and geographers please answer the question.

Either way, thanks for visiting Hong Kong and hope you come back soon!
