JELUTONG TREE


About

This rare Jelutong Tree (Dyera Costulata) is 95 years old. To conserve it the position of the Tower was shifted to avoid the tree, and a series of the soldier piles was installed as a retaining wall during the foundation excavation period to prevent the tree from topping. The conservation of the tree by perceptive planning and construction methods, incurring a total cost of RM430,000.00 permits this natural rarity to be enjoyed by the future generations. - Dated 1996
