trees planted


The areas selected were all previously forested areas. Initiated in 2009, the project contributes to the ecological restoration of these lands and the replantation with native and economically profitable trees. The expertise of the local forestry, the openness of the local community and the local schools will guarantee that these activities will be sustainable.

The Mihai Eminescu Trust project contributes to the regeneration of rural landscapes in Transylvania, by raising awareness and by involving every social stratum of planting activities.
