As a field assistant, I spent my first Co-op term in Yunnan, China. As a contractor working with government, the company mainly focused on landscape design, green spaces construction and tree planting. The project I was a part of takes place in ChengGong district, where the high-rise residential area requires 50,000 m2 of green spaces with more than 5000 trees in 50 different species. Throughout the whole work term, I have had the chance to learn about landscape design and tree planting process, which were very different from what I learned in school. I was able to experience the implementation process fully, instead of only seeing the paper plan. For the first time, I got to closely observe the planting process, which allowed me to better understand the importance of how to make adjustment according to reality without compromising the original purposes.
