Some 1000 new saplings, part of the repeatedly forewarned Orbital Forest, have been planted by the Municipality of Tirana in the Dried Lake area. Tirana’s Mayor Erion Veliaj, who personally participated in this action on Sunday, stressed that this project will continue along the entire line of city’s new belt-way which is at the same time the Orbital Forest external border.
“Trees are the best heritage that we may leave to the future generations. Saplings planting in this area is part of a large scale project which implement the concept “Two trees for one car”, zeroing the impact of the increasing number of cars on the environment. I am confident that we will manage to break the record by planting over 100.0000 trees this year thanks to the unconditioned support given by the business and the young boys and girls who voluntarily joined this project,” said Mayor Veliaj.
