Sofia’s Green Filter is Growing

Monday, 15 April 2019

The spring afforestation season was launched as early as the beginning of April and for the 3rd consecutive year the New Forest of Sofia project will bring together thousands of volunteers who want to plant trees near Suhodol. This large-scale project of Sofia Municipality is aimed at turning a deserted municipal terrain into a green filter near the city. For its realization the municipality has provided saplings, planting equipment and gloves. To date, 28,800 acacia and oak trees have been planted in the New Forest of Sofia. Anyone can join the initiative. The planting will once again take place every Saturday and Sunday from 10 am to 4 pm and will continue till the weather conditions allow it.
