TREE-PLANTING CAMPAIGN

More than 6,000 trees planted this year.

The second part of the tree-planting campaign took place in April as part of the ‘For a More Beautiful Ljubljana’ campaign, with staff from the City Administration and the public institutes and companies that operate under the City’s wing heavily involved. Last year’s campaign saw 4,000 trees planted and this year’s more than 6,000, with the goal being to plant 12,089 trees, one for every member of ‘the great city family’.  The tree planting took place in three locations – on Golovec and Toško čelo and in Medno. These are areas that were severely damaged by the 2014 ice storm, with damaged conifers being heavily attacked last year by bark beetles, which further worsened the damage. The planting areas were proposed by the Slovenian Forest Service, as they are sites where natural regeneration is poor and reforestation is necessary.
