Ha Tinh rubber forest changes from yellow to red

A rubber forest in the central province of Ha Tinh is undergoing a transformation as its trees change colour with the turning season.

Huong Khe District cultivates rubber over 6,400 hectares. Between late December to March, rubber leaves turn from yellow into red and fall to the ground through gusts of wind. 

This time of the year is not the season for rubber tapping, so bowls to contain latex are hung over the rubber trees.

The colour change of rubber leaves takes place gradually.

Travelling on HCM City Road or National Highway 15, it is easy for people to see the rubber forest in Huong Vinh commune.


The peaceful rubber forest

Rubber was cultivated in the late 19th century by French colonists. The tree has become one of Vietnam’s staple industrial crops.
