    Did they make a reference of this diagram to Singapore?

    Well … I guess it’s all relative. Singapore has lost 95% of its original vegetation but, yes, as cities go, its streets are pretty green. Some trees are also better at absorbing CO2 (eg. she oak) so you often see these by the side of highways. Re the planting of trees on the western side of your house, this is part of the sustainable design of my place in Australia 🙂
