China is working to make a tower called Nanjing Tower which would be a vertical forest building d and it is expected to be completed by 2018. It will be  656 ft and 354 ft tall, will house over 1000 trees, 2500 shrubs, and 23 different local species. If sources are to be believed than it will produce 60 kgs of oxygen, every day.
