#COExist with Nature
Sime Darby Property has joined forces with Tropical Rainforest Conservation and Research Centre (TRCRC) in pioneering the Elmina Rainforest Knowledge Center (ERKC) – a hub to promote forestry research, conservation, education and recreation.
Located next to the 2700-acre Bukit Cherakah Forest Reserve at the City of Elmina (COE), Shah Alam the Centre aims to connect humans and nature, with engaging community programmes and a tree nursery facility that can produce up to 100,000 Endangered, Rare and Threatened (ERT) trees.
These native ERT trees will be re-planted across the COE and other Sime Darby Property’s townships as part of the developer’s reforestation efforts.
The City of Elmina has set a goal of 210,000 trees to be planted upon completion of the township, 21,000 of them being ERT tree species. This is just the tip of the iceberg. Sime Darby Property invites you on an exciting journey to seed the soil for urban biodiversity.
