    Are you tired with the reinforced concrete buildings every day?
    Do you feel upset about shuttling among the bustling city and crowd?
    Let’s plant trees from this moment.

    Today is the National Tree Planting Day. However, in such a fast-paced era, there are fewer people paying attention to this day, not to mention planting trees. The whole society may call for haze governance all day, while how many people can start from daily things?

    Trees are closely related with the city and human beings, which play a significant role in environment optimization including urban climate, temperature and humidity regulation as well as ecological balance maintenance. With the increase of city population, all kinds of energy consumption increases, which drives the city temperature and humidity increase. Therefore, the "Urban Heat Island (UHI)" effect appears. Under this condition, trees can not only control the temperature and humidity in the city, but also absorb sulfur dioxide, hydrogen fluoride, chloride and other compounds in the haze, to reduce noise pollution. Experiments show that 10m wide tree belt can reduce 30% noise. For example, plant materials are used as the ceiling in Shanghai Expo India Pavilion to reduce noise.

    On occasion of the National Tree Planting Day, NITA organized all employees in the maintenance of company eco-garden, hoping to green the garden in the coming spring.
