Mind-boggling China

Check out this article for some staggering numbers. There's a legislative requirement in China for every citizen to plant three trees a year and they reckon they planted 56 billion of 'em between
2000-10 (!)


  1. Went to China last year! They are planting mature trees in their streets. Once you come out of the highrise and walk along the street, all you see is canopy cover and not high rise.
    When you look out of your high rise in Chengdu, the other highrise have roof top gardens including trees.
    They even built a road around a mature tree rather than chop it down!

    1. Makes me realise we don't know a lot about the good stuff going on in China. Thanks Sue - very interesting!
