A forest managed to land in Irkutsk activists in areas destroyed by fires. Students from nearby villages, students of Irkutsk high schools, employees of the enterprises and simply not indifferent inhabitants of area and a number of Russian regions.
The action "Plant a tree", the ecologist, gathered over a thousand participants. To date the seedlings nursed in the staff nursery. Today Siberian pine ready for planting, and rain, experts say, will contribute to the fact that the majority of trees will survive. These seedlings no. Just today put 38 thousand tiny trees. Through dozens of years on the spot where planted trees should appear in the pine forest.
Every year in the Irkutsk region and neighboring regions, the fire and black loggers destroy hundreds of thousands of hectares of forest. This year, the fines for illegal logging will increase tenfold. Those who mined the forest legally, under the new rules, are obliged to restore it. The landing site was not chosen randomly. a few years ago on this spot raged the element of fire, which almost completely destroyed the forest of ancient pines. The action "Plant a tree" is financed by funds, collected by the people of Russia through one of the sites. Anyone could choose a site and using a credit card, for example, to pay for the planting of trees. In the next few years foresters will closely monitor the pine trees and protect them from fire.
