Lahore will be the first city in Pakistan to have smart trees that provide environmental advantages.
The Lahore Central Business District Authority (LCBDA) has chosen to renovate St Mary’s Park on the Gulberg Main Boulevard into a smart garden with around a dozen smart trees in order to reduce air pollution and smog.
The authority plans to place these smart trees in St Mary’s Park near the Central Business District site, according to LCBDA CEO Imran Amin.
This Dutch technological marvel will produce as much oxygen as ten large trees and contribute to the area’s environmental improvement.
He revealed that these Internet-of-Things (IoT)-based trees will cost between $20,000 and $25,000 per unit and will provide environmental benefits as well as a new attraction in the city.
