Destroy forests...then build "forest cities"

While I am all for coming up with and supporting more sustainable plans like this, I also hope that we can still make more efforts to revive and protect our natural resources rather than just sticking nature here and there into our glass, steel, and concrete jungles. When you think about it, it's just weird that we're destroying forests and then build "forest cities" like this one.

I saw this post somewhere that shows a man cutting down trees --- the natural habitat of birds --- and then go on to build a birdhouse using the wood from the trees he cut down. I think that's similar to what you're saying here.

I think it's just ridiculous that we can't protect and take care of our existing natural resources and that we even bulldoze these to make way for urbanization. Seriously, we have to draw the line somewhere and we need to do this fast.
