Japanese cherry trees planted in Da Lat city

Up to 125 Japanese cherry (sakura) trees were planted in Da Lat city in the Central Highlands province of Lam Dong on November 21.

The trees are the gift from the Himeji Flower Auction Co., Ltd of Japan on the occasion of the 125th founding anniversary of Da Lat city that is famed for its four-season-in-a-day climate and floriculture.

Among these trees, 100 were planted on International Hill in Da Lat City Flower Park, while the remaining are grown at Muoi Loi garden which belongs to a renowned floricultural artisan in the city.

Chairman of the Da Lat People’s Committee Ton Thien San said that the local authorities have coordinated with the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) and the Japanese company in carrying out a project to popularise the use of Japanese technologies for the development of high-quality flower production areas through the modernisation of nursery and production facilities in Xuan Tho commune.

The tree planting ceremony is one of the significant activities in celebration of the 125th founding anniversary of the city as well as the 45th anniversary of Vietnam-Japan diplomatic ties, San added.
