Urumqi, capital of the Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region, announced on March 28 that it plans to give millions of trees and flowers to citizens during the voluntary tree-planting activity scheduled for mid-April.

"The Green Garden Project, as a people's livelihood construction, will distribute 1.06 million tree seedlings, 420,000 fruit seedlings and one million pots of flowers to residents, encouraging them to decorate Urumqi with their own hands," said Zhao Zejian, deputy director of the Urumqi Forestry Bureau.

The project consists of four themed activities -- a voluntary tree-planting activity, green home construction, flower distribution and seedling distribution.

The Urumqi Forestry Bureau will coordinate relevant departments and organizations at district and county levels to organize the upcoming activities.

Urumqi expects to be an ecological city covered with trees, flowers and pleasant scenes after the project is accomplished.
