Are Gardens By The Bay’s Supertrees really the future of city greening? https://t.co/5JF7xyvCEE

One city where that idea is being applied on a major scale — Singapore. Two million trees have been planted here in the last 45 years. This city is now richer in species than any other in the world and this practice extends to all parts of the city. The waterways have been cleaned up and smooth coated otters are coming back. But perhaps the most spectacular example of city greening is this growth of super trees. These 150-feet (50 metres) high macro structures are now full of life. Creepers have been planted to grow over the outermost branches. This is a new urban world that we have now designed and built with others in mind. Create the space and the animals will come. Is this a vision of our cities of the future? It could be possible to see wildlife thriving within our cities across the planet.
