Abstract

Cutting of trees leads to the accumulation of greenhouse gases which poses an increasing threat that leads to an unfavorable climatic patterns. Due to smog and heat, metropolitan cities experiences bad weather condition leading to massive deaths which are more common in the past decade. Industries, vehicular emissions and other means poses a prominent cause that makes worse in the concentration of high toxic molecules in the air from multiple sources. Accumulation of Nitrous oxides, silicon gases increases the photochemical smog accumulating in the air which stimulates global warming by preventing the oxygen supply and fresh air. This inhibits the free flowing of oxygen supply which leads to various health issues and chronic infectory syndromes. To mitigate the rising effects of air pollution, a real-time solution called Vertical Forest has been proposed. The establishment of vertical forests produces its own local atmospheric zone by absorbing CO2 and dust particles thus providing oxygen supply and humidity thereby facilitating the sustainable growth and development of the ecosystem. Vertical forest when integrated along with Internet of Things (IoT) favors efficient and a high synergy which contributes the sustainability in an effective way.
