A tree-planting activity was held in the Xi'an International Trade & Logistics (ITL) Park on March 5, which is also a prelude to the greening campaign this spring.
Li Yuan, Party secretary of the ITL administrative committee and other officials planted more than 300 trees including osmanthus fragrans, white bark pines and privets along the northern side of Qinghan Road.
Li learned about the overall arrangement of greening plan in the park.
ITL plans to build three flower landscape avenues, one waterfront flower passageway and four greenbelt squares with newly built green area of 700,000 square meters.

Other environmental upgrading projects are also under way to get the area ready for the 14th National Games which will commence in 2021.
Planting trees for greening is a good way to fight against the air pollution and haze, Li said.
"We should motivate citizens to participate in the tree planting campaign," he added.
