About planting to reduce air pollution.
I can't find out which plants do most to improve the worst areas.
I get the impression that the worst areas are hot streets where particles linger from car exhaust, and that there is even a map of them somehwere.
I get the impression that plants to most good by trapping dirt on their leaves till it's washed down the drain next time it rains, rather than ending-up in someone's lungs.
I get the impression that shade and gas processing help too; that there's good work being done to plant trees.
I want to plant something like virginia creeper on the fences down the middles of a few roads in the hope that the fashion catches-on and other prople do the same.
Is virginia creeper the best plant? The information is probably on the net somwhere but I can't find it. Creepers with hairy leaves are probably best. Virginia creeper berries aren't edible, so that's a bad point, but the creeper can do a lot of creeping from very few cracks in the concrete that it finds for itself, so that's a good point.
