Green City Solutions is a German start-up responsible for designing CityTree's, large urban tree installations displayed in public spaces that intend to clean up the city's polluted air. According to the World Health Organization, 6.5 million deaths per year, and the development of numerous health conditions can be attributed to air pollution.

City Green Solutions aimed to address these issues with a functional, and attractive solution -- vertical urban planters placed throughout city centers. These planters, called CityTrees, have "the performance of up to 275 conventionally planted urban trees, but only needs 5% of the cost and 99% less space."

These urban tree installations will be a major feat for the biotech industry as they endeavor into new territories of urban design, and eco-architecture.
