On NuevoPeriodico an article by Alan Simson (Professor of Landscape Architecture and Urban Forestry, Leeds Beckett University), reports that the significant environmental and health problems for city dwellers are often aggravated by the lack of contact with the natural world. One of the solutions to solve these problems is to plant many more urban trees and to focus on new and creative methods of Urban Forestry.

Alan mentioned the Bosco Verticale project (Boeri Studio, 2014) as an example of this type of approach and case study in the field of green architecture. The project is the prototype building of a new biodiversity architecture: it houses 800 trees, 15,000 perennials and 5,000 shrubs. Stefano Boeri Architetti is today developing the declinations of this architectural model all over the world, such as in Nanjing, Lausanne and in the Netherlands.
