Spring is the season for rebirth and renewal, also the time for planting trees again. This year, Huai'an of Jiangsu Province will plant 1,887 hectares of trees, among them 667 hectares of precious tree species.
The city will renew the current planting patterns to attract more volunteers. It will explore the effective publicity to reach all citizens by using platforms including SMS, the Internet and WeChat. People can choose among various ways to support the tree-planting campaign such as nature preservation, adopting trees, infrastructure construction, donations and voluntary service. Citizens will be provided with a big platform for carrying out tree-planting obligations. Meanwhile, voluntary tree-planting will be combined with showcases of modern agricultural progress. People will appreciate spring outings, bodybuilding, leisure agricultural tourism and delicious countryside food.
