Riyadh Municipality launches “Tree for Each Building” initiative
Riyadh Municipality has launched an initiative entitled "Tree for Each Building", aimed at increasing the afforestation rate in Riyadh city and doubling the number of trees and taking care of them, to include the planting of sidewalks in front of residential houses, establishments and commercial centers.

Riyadh Municipality said that this initiative emphasizes the importance of afforestation in preserving the ecological balance, and its role in air purification and combating sources of pollution, adding aesthetic character inside the city, as well as its contribution to improving the level of oxygen in the air, alleviating the temperature in summer and resisting many diseases and pests.

Riyadh Municipality has launched a website dedicated to this initiative (tashgeer.alriyadh.gov.sa) to facilitate the participation of community members in planting of sidewalks in front of their homes, providing them with the necessary guidance and set a date for the delivery of arable plants, and granting membership certificate to participants.
