As Beijing's city center is already too crowded to add more areas for trees, grass and stuff, officials are looking to the skies.

Rooftop green belts, could potentially be seen on 30 percent of the city's high rises and 60 percent of its lower buildings by the time of the 2008 Olympic Games, Treehugger reports. Ten thousand square meters of rooftop lawns were planted in 2004 and the Chinese government plans to up that number to 100,000 square meters this year.
