On March 10, more than 100 foreign experts and their family who are now living in Wuhan, capital city of central China’s Hubei Province, gathered at the Sino-French Wuhan Ecological Demonstration City to plant trees.

 

Ian Robertson, Australian, is a special professor of Huazhong Agricultural University. He cited the old Chinese saying “One generation plants the trees,another gets the shade” to wish a long-lasting friendship with China.

 

The annual tree-planting activity was launched by Hubei Provincial Bureau of Foreign Experts on a voluntary basis since 2001. For 17 years, there have been a total of more than 1,700 foreign experts planted 16,000 trees for the three Foreign Expert Friendship Forests in Wuhan and Ezhou.
