Forest management allocated a site for the event, and KAU prepared the ground for planting and provided volunteers with a forestry instrument. On this occasion, one of the participants, Ilya Kravilov, composed a verse:
“I did not think until now
That the sword is suitable and not only wars.
We stuck into the ground together we
His guns, without doing it, hurts.
And not one hectare after we have hundreds, we’ll sow thousands
Let the Siberian pine grow grow
Let it get stronger soon. "
The weather inspired the volunteers, as best she could - the air temperature reached +210C. A good mood was a great help in work, to which the participants began with youthful enthusiasm.
As a result of joint work on an area of 8 hectares of unrelerated lands of the Lesnoye Forest Fund of Lake-Kuznetsovsky forestry, 20 thousand seedlings of ordinary pine were planted. Planting material with a closed root system was raised by the employees of the Altai Forest Semenovodskiye Center of the Altales KAU branch.
