Wild Trees Grow Up The Side Of High-Rises In Hong Kong

Hong Kong’s greenery doesn’t feel the need to stay confined to the undeveloped areas on the outskirts of the city, the plants there are ready to move in to a penthouse apartment of their own.

These highly adaptive trees have begun to grow on the sides of high-rise buildings all over Hong Kong, hanging on to the sides of concrete buildings by their roots. This incredible phenomenon, nature surviving despite human development, has been documented by photographer Romain Jacquet-Lagreze in a series called Wild Concrete.

It’s fascinating to see the roots trail up the side of a massive high-rise, imagining the tree climbing its way up the building year after year until it reaches the rooftop and achieves maximum sun exposure.
