Hanoi to replace 6,700 trees along streets


According to the Hanoi Department of Construction, the agency conducted a survey of 30,000 trees on 200 streets in 10 districts and decided to replace 6,700 trees on 190 streets because the trees are unsuited for the urban environment or are dying.


The project will be completed in 2015, at a cost of over VND73 billion ($2.6 million) from the city budget.

 

At present, more than 100 species of trees are available on more than 500 of Hanoi’s streets, including 25 species in large numbers. There are up to 50,000 giant crape-myrtle, flamboyant, mahogany, cassod and dracontomelon trees. They are considered the typical trees of Hanoi.

 

Crape-myrtle trees are very common on old streets but their roots are hollow, causing damage to underground works and sidewalks. And the trees can easily collapse in storms.
