SHAH ALAM: A total of 1,500 forest trees will be planted under the 'Trees to Green' initiative by property developer I&P Group Sdn Bhd at the Alam Impian township here.

"Work on-site will commence soon and is expected to complete by September 2012," he told a press conference after the launch of the project by the Sultan of Selangor, Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah, here, Thursday.
It includes increasing the density of trees, planting of water edge plants and suitable aquatic plants at the lake area and introducingtion of pocket forest at suitable locations within the park.
