I've noticed that wind direction changes in the game and now my town is directly downwind from my industrial area, causing pollution and zombie attacks. Is there a way to get rid of the pollution? I'm already at the highest tech level for the industry, but my PPM are still significant.

+1 for pollution and zombie attacks – MapCavalier Mar 7 '13 at 2:35
Wind can change directions... oh man I'm screwed. – ThinkingMedia Mar 7 '13 at 8:27

In the toolbar at the bottom, click the Tree icon and plant some forests down wind of the factories. The trees will clean the air.

Are these the "Nature Parks" or the actual trees with the radial dropper? – EhevuTov Mar 7 '13 at 8:54
I think you can use the cheap "Plant Forest" dropper which costs $50 per forest. It's at the far right in the "Nature" tab. You can also try planting the narrow row of tree between buildings and see if that helps, but I don't think it's as effective as the forest. – ThinkingMedia Mar 7 '13 at 9:09
I attempted to use trees to kill air pollution. The air pollution killed the trees. – David B Mar 9 '13 at 1:19
You need to keep replanting, until the the pollution is low enough for the trees to keep growing. I believe parks will help too. – Get Off My Lawn Mar 9 '13 at 16:53
