Collective Tree Planting in Croatia to Encourage Environmental Awareness

Lauren Simmonds

The importance of being more environmentally aware is paramount, and the more we hear, read and begin to understand about what we as humans can do to help our surrounding environment, the more we can give back not only to the Earth but to future generations. Planting trees is just one simple but effective way for anyone and everyone in Croatia (or indeed wherever else) to do their bit.

As Morski/Lucija Radulj writes on the 6th of October, 2019, the praiseworthy citizens initiative “Collective Tree Planting Days in Croatia” (Dani kolektivne sadnje drveća u Hrvatskoj) which is set to take place from the 25th to the 27th of October, 2019, organises a collective tree planting mission called “Plant a tree, don’t be a stump” (Zasadi drvo, ne budi panj).

The action seeks to encourage citizens, associations, businesses and institutions to plant as many trees as possible in private and public areas across the Republic of Croatia in three days to contribute to being more green, taking better care of the environment and highlight the importance and many benefits of having as many trees and as much greenery as possible, especially in cities and in other urban areas.

The importance of this action was also recognised by the Mljet National Park Public Institution (NP Mljet) on the gorgeous emerald island of Mljet in southern Croatia, which will donate fity olive and carob seedlings to schools and kindergartens in Dubrovnik-Neretva County in southern Dalmatia.

The first seedlings will be given to schools and kindergartens in the area(s) of ​​Ploče, Staševica, Komin and the country’s southernmost municipality – Konavle. In addition to donating seedlings, Mljet National Park will also give lectures to students on the topic of olive and carob trees, and try to better explain their absolutely vital role in the lives of southern Croatia’s residents and the importance of forest conservation.
