    HK Timberbank is a Hong Kong social enterprise that turns tree waste into furniture and art installations. Founder Ricci Wong launched the organisation after Typhoon Mangkhut uprooted tens of thousands of trees in the city. With more than 300 tonnes (330 tons) of trees recycled in 2020, HK Timberbank hopes to make a positive impact by eventually reducing the city’s reliance on imported wood.

    Hong Kong, officially the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China (HKSAR), is a metropolitan area and special administrative region of the People’s Republic of China on the eastern Pearl River Delta of the South China Sea. With over 7.5 million residents of various nationalities in a 1,104-square-kilometre (426 sq mi) territory, Hong Kong is one of the most densely populated places in the world.

    Hong Kong became a colony of the British Empire after the Qing Empire ceded Hong Kong Island at the end of the First Opium War in 1842. The colony expanded to the Kowloon Peninsula in 1860 after the Second Opium War and was further extended when Britain obtained a 99-year lease of the New Territories in 1898. The whole territory was transferred to China in 1997. As a special administrative region, Hong Kong maintains separate governing and economic systems from that of mainland China under the principle of “one country, two systems”.
