Banyan has always been popular in Fuzhou. In the Northern Song Dynasty, mayor Zhang Boyu encouraged all families to plant banyans so that the whole city is under the shade of banyan trees in summer. On February 8, 1985, "banyan" was designated as the city tree of Fuzhou in the twelfth session of the eighth NPC Standing Committee of Fuzhou. There are nearly 1,000 banyan trees within the city proper of Fuzhou. These banyans are perennial, erected, lush and vibrant and Fuzhou is thus honored as a "city of banyan". One 1,000-year-old banyan inside the National Forestry Park of Fuzhou is the No. 1 banyan of Fuzhou.

Baima River used to be the moat of Fuzhou. It originates from Xihu of Fuzhou, passes the western part of Fuzhou and flows into the Min River in the west of Taijiang District. There is Baimahe Park along the bank of Baima River. Baima Road which is constructed along the river crosses downtown Fuzhou from south to north and becomes one of the main thoroughfares of Fuzhou. The following famous scenes deserve your visit: Subtropical park: Baima River is lined with crossing fields and ponds on both sides. The Park has nearly 80,000 arbors and bushes, primarily including banyans and bamboos, which emphasize the subtropical features. The statues also constitute a unique attraction here. Forests on the eastern bank: the eastern bank of Baima River is full of family Palmae like fan palm, fishtail palm and Phoenix roebelenii and therefore it becomes a "Palm Park". 24 big banyans are also planted here with decorating hedges on three sides and flowers, bamboos and Bougainvillea in the middle to constitute a "banyan square". The extending terrace is planted with mango trees, Nanyang bamboos, Hibiscus mutabilis, osmanthus and Chinese hibiscus around to constitute the "Wufu Square". Fragrant flowers on the western bank: the western bank of Baima River is full of green lawns, flower grounds and water pools that offer comfortable and amicable scenes to tourists. The site to the south of Liming Bridge has an "Orchid and Osmanthus Park" where osmanthus, Yulan, camellia, Michelia figo and orchid give off their fragrances throughout the year. There is also an "Ancient Banyan Square" here.
