In the midst of the changing weather, many streets in Hanoi have taken on a new green color as tens of thousands of Bucida molinetii have changed their leaves.
The road along the To Lich River or the streets of Hoang Hoa Tham, Xa Dan, Nguyen Luong Bang are attractive photo spots for Hanoians as the rows of small trees turn bright green in the wet and foggy spring weather.
The rows of Bucida molinetii on the banks of the To Lich River are in the growing season, creating a dreamy beauty.
Poetic beauty is the result of the young green leaves of the trees, which are an attraction in the transition from spring to summer.
The small-leaved Bucida molinetii was planted on Hanoi's roads a few years ago.
The trees were planted to replace maple trees on some of Hanoi's streets. The small-leaved tree can reach a height of 5-20m.
Bucida molinetii trees are becoming more popular in Hanoi because of their straight shape, beautiful foliage, and tiny leaves that leave no litter on the street when they fall.
The small green-leafed trees both cool the room and filter out harmful gases and return fresh air. Their straight shape also helps to limit tree breakage during storms, reducing maintenance and pruning costs.
Rows of small green-leaved trees have attracted many young people to take pictures to save the moments of the change of season.
Passers-by when seeing the beautiful trees also stop to take pictures.
