In September last year, the city government planted 50 palm trees in the neighborhood of Gyeongpo Beach and created a photo zone as part of efforts to raise the public’s awareness about climate change as well as to create eye-catching urban landscapes.

The city government also plans to build a greenhouse for the storage of palm tree pots with a floor space of 992 square meters.
