BEIJING, April 10 (Xinhua) -- Vice chairpersons of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress (NPC), or China's national legislature, Zhang Chunxian, Shen Yueyue, Ji Bingxuan, Padma Choling and Wu Weihua on Wednesday participated in a tree-planting event in Beijing.

They were joined by a group of legislators from the NPC Standing Committee and the NPC's special committees at the event held at the Qinglong Lake tree-planting area in Fengtai District.

In just over an hour, around 350 saplings of different types of trees were planted.

Amid the NPC organs' own ecological conservation efforts, tree-planting activities they have organized since 2005 in the Beigong National Forest Park, Fengtai District, have given birth to the "NPC Woods," which are of a considerable scale and an important landscape of the park.
