A dozen of primary school students, parents, members of the Deshenhui Club and researchers from relevant institutes of Beijing, a total of about 50 people participated in the tree planting.
International Wood Culture Society prepared an illustration board for tree planting steps, and the children first learned about tree planting knowledge, and then began to select saplings, and together with parents and teachers, they happily dug pits, backfilled, grounded down, soil covered, and watered. They plant their beloved magnolia flowers, walnut trees or vines, and at the same time their love for trees and green environment is rooted.
