MIND – Green Landscape
With 60 percent of the estate land landscaped with 200 exotic plant species, the refreshing sight of evergreen foliage greets guests all year round. Based on the attention restoration theory (S. Kaplan, 1995), exposure to nature helps to reduce mental fatigue. Considering how nature promotes several health benefits, Treetops continuously enhances its unrivalled green landscape so that guests can wake up to the luscious green entourage every morning and stroll through the canopy of native trees and plants for a quick respite anytime.
MIND – Discover Green News
An initiative launched in August 2009, Discover Green is a series of e-mailers sent with the purpose to keep guests updated of the green features added at Treetops while offering some health tips that are often neglected in their daily lives.
MIND – Go Green: Energy Conservation & Recycling
Understanding the growing concerns on environmental issues faced in today’s society, Treetops seek to impose our intrinsic belief of playing a part in being “Corporate Social Responsible” for a worthy global cause.
As part of our desire to be an environmental friendly organisation, Treetops has achieved savings of up to 50% on its electricity consumption since year 2009 with the installation of green retrofits within the estate.
Recycling bins are also conveniently located within the premises to encourage recycling amongst our guests. Waste are also sorted at the Bin Centre before final disposal. Reduce, Reuse and Recycle with us today!
BODY – Excellent Indoor Air Quality
All apartments in Treetops are equipped with air filtering systems. This system helps to remove the harmful dust particles and bacteria in the air that can be detrimental to human health. At the same time, it ensures an adequate supply of oxygen indoors by reducing unnecessary amount of carbon dioxide. Readings taken during regular checks have shown that the indoor air quality in our apartments is better as compared to outdoor air.
BODY – Smoking & Non-Smoking Apartments
Well separated Smoking & Non-Smoking Apartments ensures that the Non-smokers staying at Treetops will not have to put up with the smell of cigarettes that might jeopardise their health and well-being. Smokers will be discouraged to smoke in certain areas of the premises.
BODY – Non Toxic Cleaning Materials and Misting Treatments against Mosquitoes
All the cleaning materials used in the apartments are certified as environmental-friendly and non-toxic. Non-toxic misting treatment against mosquitoes is being used instead of the normal fogging to prevent emission of unhealthy fumes. By doing so, we seek to minimise the exposure of chemicals that are harmful to both our body and the environment.
BODY – Orthopedic Mattresses
Statistics have shown that Serviced Apartments’ guests spend more time in the apartment than Hotel guests. Treetops uses certified orthopedic mattresses designed by top orthopedic surgeons and clinicians from leading medical centre in all the apartments. With that, guests can enjoy a mattress that is ergonomically designed for correct orthopedic support and advanced comfort to improve the quality of sleep.
BODY – Bathroom Amenities

- Don’t drive; take public transport instead,
- Don’t take the lift; use stairs wherever possible, and
- Don’t take fried food; opt for a healthy menu of fruits and vegetables instead.
Green apples and other fruits are being distributed on this day to guests, whom are also invited to join in our green day activities.
