With HK$14,400 sponsored by UBM Asia and HK$14,616.5 raised among colleagues, a total of HK$29,016.5 (US$3,720) was donated to Friends of Earth Hong Kong for site preparation, seedlings purchase and three-year maintenance of the woodland. 

Tree Planting Challenge is a unique environmental activity that combines tree-planting and hiking. The event welcomes all nature lovers to experience the challenge of tree-planting work and spread the message of "Save Trees, Conserve Nature". This year, over 700 participants enrolled in the event and about 6,000 seedlings were planted on a site up on the hill which was ruined by fire last autumn. The thousands of trees planted can help absorb carbon dioxide, stabilise the atmospheric temperature and replenish water resources when they grow up.

Each team of tree planters was required to design and make carriers for transporting the seedlings and planting tools to the designated site. One of the UBM Asia teams won the Smartest Tree-planting Award for designing the most creative, user-friendly and environmental-friendly carrier.
