According to local media reports, Hohhot, the capital city of North China’s Inner Mongolia autonomous region, has been making real progress in its efforts to "go green" and develop itself into a Beautiful Prairie City. 

According to the current development plan, Hohhot no longer plants trees that are not suitable for urban areas.

Adjustments have been made to relieve pressure on densely planted areas and support areas that need to be supplemented. A large number of noninvasive plant species, including grasses and flowers, have been added to existing areas of vegetation to increase the urban environment's health.

The city aims to develop an urban green space system with coordinated species and create a natural landscape dominated by grasslands.

After years of development, Hohhot has gradually built a multi-level, multi-pattern urban green space ecosystem framework.

Daqing Mountain serves as a natural barrier and green background in the periphery of the city. At the same time, a scientific urban road greening network has been gradually established within the metropolitan area.

To promote the living environment, Hohhot has expanded the coverage of parks and green areas. Renovations and upgrades have been carried out at the Grassland Silk Road Cultural Park, Xilin Park and Manduhai Park.
