The Civil and Municipal Affairs Bureau (IACM) will be adding more tree burial spots to the city’s tree burial cemetery, according to a report by Macao Daily News. IACM’s administrative committee member Leong Kun Fong said that 62 tree burial spots are currently occupied. IACM launched a tree burial project last September, with 440 tree burials spots arranged. The bureau plans on saving spare land to be used for tree burials near the Taipa Sa Kong Municipal Cemetery. This area has already been reserved for the cemetery’s use and the government will initiate design operations after the surrounding zone is cleaned thoroughly.
