Goodbye to the last sawmill in Hong Kong
- By: Karmen LiEdited by: Tracy Leung、Jenny Lam
Chi Kee Timber and Sawmill was bulldozed on Sept 27 to make way for the Northern Metropolis project. The Wong family who owns the mill was asked to leave. They were offered HK$14 in 2019 to relocate, but the family said that’s not enough.
They started the mill in 1947 in North Point. It moved to Ma Tso Long in 1982.
It was the last sawmill in Hong Kong.
