Beijing, November 30: You might have seen many forests but have you ever heard of a vertical forest? Soon it will be seen in reality as China has put the pillars to built World’s first Forest City.
This is quite unique to hear that how can concrete jungles be built along with natural jungle. Guangxi city in China will have its new face soon as the color Grey will change to color Green. The aim is to build this eco-friendly atmosphere with 40000 trees and around 1 million plants of various species. This will help to curb the rising air pollution in China. Moreover it will absorb almost 10,000 tons of carbon dioxide and 57 tons of pollutants, and produce approximately 900 tons of oxygen annually.
As a result, Forest City will help to decrease the average air temperature, improve local air quality, create noise barriers, generate habitats, and improve local biodiversity in the region.
The city will also be entirely wired, and will include commercial zones, residential areas, recreational spaces, a hospital, and two schools. Forest City will be connected to Liuzhou by a fast rail line for electric cars. The project has a high profile in China and, if it succeeds, it will set an example for green city design elsewhere in the country and around the world. The project is planned to be complete sometime in 2020.
