HCM CITY (VNS)— The People's Committee of HCM City has issued a list of 28 kinds of trees banned from planting along city streets.
The trees have poisonous seeds, easily broken branches or many thorns.
Sandbox trees, for instance, have poisonous latex and seeds, and tropical almond trees can be easily infected with worms.
Individuals and organisations will not be allowed to plant these kind of trees along streets from December 5.
Government agencies are responsible for replacing the banned trees along city streets with other species.
The banned trees include sandbox, tropical almond, rubber, coconut, Manila tamarind, strangler fig and fishtail palms. — VNS
