Hanoi authorities have successfully planted one million trees in the past three years in a project that cost VND256bn (USD11m), said Hanoi Chairman Nguyen Duc Chung.

The figures were announced during the review meeting on civic campaigns during 2018 on December 10. Hanoi will continue to plant 600,000 more trees. District and ward authorities were asked to make annual tree planting plans.

"Hanoi will plant 300,000 more trees each year so that we'll have 600,000 new trees by 2020," Chung said.

Hanoi authorities also spent VND187bn (USD8m) on tree trimming from 2016 to 2018.

The one million tree planting project for 2016-2020 period was proposed by Nguyen Duc Chung in 2016. More trees have been quickly planted on streets that lacked green space like Vo Nguyen Giap and Vo Van Kiet. They also replaced the trees on several streets including Xa Dan, Giai Phong and Vo Chi Cong.

Flowers and bushes have been added or replaced on 120 central streets. Hanoi authorities also used different types of trees such as orchid and date palm trees.
