100 lindens for 110 years

Semenarna Ljubljana is celebrating.

The seed company Semenarna Ljubljana, which this year is celebrating its 110th birthday, has donated 110 linden trees to Ljubljana – European Green Capital. These will be planted over the next five years along the Path of Remembrance and Comradeship. The first linden was planted today by the director of Semenarna Ljubljana and the Mayor of Ljubljana. 

In Ljubljana, there are over 42,000 trees in the care of the City of Ljubljana. Of these, 10%, or something over 4,000 trees, are lindens.  At the planting ceremony, the Director of Semenarna Ljubljana said that they and the City of Ljubljana had chosen lindens because it is the foremost Slovenian symbol, the Slovenian tree. Secondly, the linden provides pollen, so it is a nectar tree. We support bees, and provide bee meadows even in urban centres so we have united one with the other.
