Venue Overview

Tree Planting Site: North shore of Hongluo Lake in the Hongluo Lake Scenic Territory. Hongluo Lake spans a total area of 1,200 acres, of which 1,000 acres being water, and 200 acres being land. In Hongluo Lake you will find it a splendid picture: waves, trees, mountains, rivers, birds ... and, of course, the most important one, the Rhodospirillum Fairy giant statue in the center of the lake. Hongluo Lake is 52 km away from downtown Beijing, and 2 km from downtown Huairou.

Arbor Day: According to UN statistics, there are more than 50 countries in the world which have established the Arbor Day. Due to differences in cultures and geographies, naming and date are not always the same, for example, Myanmar calls it the “Tree Planting Month”, French “National Tree Day”, and Canada “Forest Week”.

Arbor Day in China is March 12, which was approved by the National People's Congress in 1979 under the proposal of Deng Xiaoping.

Arbor Day first appeared in Nebraska. Before the 20th century, Nebraska was a bare wasteland with scarce trees. In 1872, American agronomist Julius Morton proposed & executed the idea of the Arbor Day as an afforestation plan. By the end of the year, million of trees were planted, and in the following 16 yeas, a total of 600 million trees were planted, turning the 10 million hectares wilderness of Nebraska into a dense forest. In recognition of Morton's achievements, in 1885 the State Council made Morton’s birthday the annual Arbor Day and a public holiday.

To date, 1/3 area of the US is covered by trees and forests. Arbor Day has to be credited for such a stunning fact!

Remarks
