China will soon build two vertical forest buildings planted with trees and shrubs in Nanjing city. This is to help the city’s anti-pollution drive.

The two buildings are scheduled to be completed in 2018. The towers will be 354 and 656 feet tall, and will have 1,100 trees and more than 2,500 shrubs and plants. The shorter tower will house a Hyatt hotel, while the taller one will have a museum, offices and a school.

Since 2014, the Chinese government has been working to reduce pollution. Vertical forest buildings, along with closing coal-burning factories and limiting vehicle traffic, are all important steps toward improved air quality.
