HA NOI (VNS) — About 247 trees will be planted along the Nguyen Chi Thanh Road to replace the trees that were felled earlier, said Vo Nguyen Phong, deputy director of Ha Noi Construction Sector.
According to the directions of the chairman of the city's People's Committee, the sector will co-ordinate with relevant agencies to plant new trees on Saturday, Phong said.
Last week, the sector held a meeting to elicit opinions from scientists and experts to choose the suitable trees for planting, said Prof, Dr Vu Hoan, head of Ha Noi Science and Technology Association.
After checking out all the trees planted in Ha Noi, they decided to choose five species of trees that were conducive to the soil and weather here and would grow well, will be less vulnerable to termite and will be storm resistant, Hoan said.
These trees have been also planted in some streets in Ha Noi, he added.
The total cost for planting these is being contributed by the union of Ha Noi Police. — VNS
