On 17th and 18th October 2020, within the EU Green week partner event Green alley rally, we have been planting trees together with locals and volunteers from OZ Permoníci. We have planted more than 70 trees in agricultural land in NATURA 2000 SPA Ostrovné lúky. The planted trees consisted of oaks, black poplars, ashes, but also hawthorns and wild apple trees. In future, these tree lines will become biocorridors and refugees for animals and soil fauna and at the same time they will provide wind barriers which will protect the valuable soil from wind erosion. The tree lines are immensely important in the mosaic of agricultural land and the irreplaceble role they have is repeatedly confirmed to us. During the project we have planted over 17 km of biocorridors and we believe that when we will come back in a few years, we will reap the harvest of our work, figuratively and maybe literally as well 😉
We would like to thank all the volunteers for their help!
