“Library of Trees” in Milan

“Library of Trees” in Milan

The ambitious project might show the world a way to create healthier and happier urban spaces

Transforming the grey city, began with the planting of seeds in September and by trees and plants in November 2017. There will be 450 trees from 19 species, 90,000 plants including hedges, shrubs and climbers. The “Library of Trees” will be a 3,500m2 green space in the heart of Milan that is increasingly returning to nature.

The so called – vertical forest, aims to reduce pollution and to increase the biodiversity. The vertical forests concept has proven so popular that similar projects have been commissioned for Switzerland, Netherlands, and China.
