The newly established economic zone, the Xiongan New Area, will plant 100,000 mu (6,670 hectares) of trees in 2018, according to a recent report of the Hebei Daily.
The afforestation, to be implemented in spring and autumn respectively, was announced at a meeting of afforestation work of the new area for 2018.
The new area will respect the law of nature, take advantage of market mechanisms, innovate afforestation approaches, and make down-to-earth efforts in the greening work, the meeting said.
With the massive afforestation, the new area will become a low-carbon and livable area where people and nature exist in harmony, the meeting added.
