We must organize the whole society, especially the young people, to participate in tree planting activities, get close to nature, understand nature, protect nature, cultivate an ecological awareness of love for nature and cherishing life, learn to experience the concept of green development, and afforestation is the cause of contemporary and profitable development. It will take one year and then one year to do it one generation after another.

At 10 o’clock in the morning, party and state leaders Xi Jinping, Zhang Dejiang, Yu Zhengsheng, Liu Yunshan, Wang Qishan, and Zhang Gaoli took a group ride to the tree planting site in Jiangtai Township, Chaoyang District, Beijing, and participated in the compulsory tree planting activities with the citizens of the capital. .
This piece of planting area, which is adjacent to the East Fifth Ring, covers an area of more than 200 mu and is the first green belt isolation zone in Beijing. The site was formerly the home of Taiwan’s Yijia Village. In October 2015, according to the orderly dispersal of Beijing’s non-capital function, the entire village was demolished and the site was vacated for greening.

Xi Jinping waved greetings to everyone and picked up the iron shovels to plant trees. He began to plant trees with the comrades of the Beijing Municipality, the State Forestry Administration, and the capital cadres, volunteers, and young pioneers.

I am very happy to plant trees with my classmates at this time of year. It is hoped that the students will establish their awareness of protecting the environment and love green and protecting the environment. They must both understand the truth and do practical practitioners, actively nurture labor awareness and labor ability, use their hands to plant green for the motherland, and beautify our common life. world.
Tree planting scene is full of heat. Leading comrades participating in the compulsory tree planting will help raise seedlings, cultivate soil, coffer, and water with everyone. They also exchange views on planting trees, beautify the environment, and protect the environment from time to time.
In the tree-planting gap, Xi Jinping talked graciously with the cadres and people present. He said that in recent years, the land-greening operation has advanced in depth and achieved remarkable results. However, compared with the requirements for the construction of ecological civilization, China’s green is still not enough and not good enough. We must continue to work hard. Party committees and governments at all levels need not work in my ideological realm to coordinate the advancement of comprehensive management of Lintian Lake in the mountains, accelerate the pace of urban and rural afforestation integration, increase the area of greening, enhance the quality of forests, and continue to strengthen ecological protection to jointly promote the ecology of the motherland. The environment is well built and well protected.
Xi Jinping stressed that participating in compulsory tree planting is a legal obligation for every citizen. Former people planted trees to cool down, and each of us was a cool rider, but we also had to be a tree-planter. Leading cadres at all levels must practice themselves, and at the same time, they must innovate in the form of responsible and tree-planting responsibilities to allow the people to participate in the greening of the land better and more easily, provide the people with more quality ecological products, and let the people share the fruits of ecological civilization construction.
