Q: Why do they paint the trees in Chinese cities white?

I've never seen it anywhere else and can't figure out why they would do that...

Some believe that it prevents sunburn and damage to the thin layer just beneath the bark that transports water up to the leaves. Crop trees are pruned to get the branches off the ground to make them easier to harvest, but that exposes the trunk to direct sunlight, which would be filtered if the branches were left alone.

Chinese people just can't let nature alone :(

They put that white stuff on trees so cute little bugs can starve to death. It's sad :(

it's not paint! it is limestone powder! makes the trees healthier and it does not kill cute little bugs, but the bugs hate it so they bug off! it also helps to make fruit sweeter

The US was going to sign a bill for a similar project to preserve several endangered species of trees in the northwest, but the bill was rejected and later replaced by one which secured several trillion dollars for the Uber elite and military budget.

It's probably an out-dated anti-pest technique...

A:My friends who are managing schools still can't recruit from outside of China because of the borders being closed, as far as I know that doesn't look like it's going to change anytime soon. If you have a current existing residence permit etc you can re-enter the country, going through the usual quarantine process obviously but no new visas are being issued. I don't know about business visas but I suspect it wouldn't be much different. For up to date info you could probably contact the Chinese embassy in your country. -- Stiggs
