4 thousand trees planted to restore the burnt forest of the Volga-Akhtubinskaya floodplain

On October 26, in the Volga-Akhtuba floodplain, 2 thousand oak seedlings and 2 thousand maple seedlings were planted to restore the forest affected by the fires. The plantings were organized as part of the PosadiLes forest restoration and conservation project with the support of the Regional Committee for Natural Resources, Forestry and Ecology, the ECA movement and the Lenta company.

Посадка прошла на территории площадью 2 га, в них приняли участие около 80 волонтеров, среди них — неравнодушные местные жители, представители общественных организаций, студенты. Territories для посадок были специально подготовлены сотрудниками местных лесничеств, которые будут осуществлять последующий уход за саженцами. На средства, пожертвованные ЛЕНТА, были закуплены саженцы, организован транспорт и питание для волонтеров.

“It is very pleasant that not only caring residents of the region take an active part in tree planting, but also socially responsible business. We are grateful to the Lenta company and all participants for augmenting the forests of the Volgograd region ", - Project Manager "PosadiLes" Munteanu Marianna.

Since 2015, more than 12 thousand trees have already been planted in the Volgograd Region within the framework of the PosadiLes project. Landing reports can be viewed here.
