Singapore has supertrees. “…As the metropolis continues to grow, urban planners are weaving nature throughout—and even into its heights. New developments must include plant life, in the form of green roofs, cascading vertical gardens, and verdant walls.”
According to architect and urban planner cheong Koon Hean who oversees Singapore’s public housing, “we intersperse parks, rivers, and ponds amid our high-rises. These bodies of water also double as flood-control mechanisms. And we plant lushly—some three million trees cover Singapore, including a stand of virgin rainforest, rich in biodiversity, right in the heart of the island.”
“We are also connecting our many parks into a network.” Although this network is intended to be used for cycling and walking t rails, I suspect they will also indirectly provide the healthy, biodiverse corridors for wildlife Professor of Entomology & Wildlife Ecology Doug Tallamy promotes.
