By wandering the streets of Maputo, one can tell that Lourenço Marques, the former name of this city, was very green with Trees in every single street & avenue. Even today Trees are found almost everywhere.

The City Council of Maputo just needs to pay a little more attention to its actual Trees and to replant a few others in some empty spots. The city will then easily revive the best of its glorious green era.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
