TREEPLANTING IN ANCIENT OLYMPIA, GREECE
Prefecture of Ilia, Ancient Olympia. A place that every year counts its wounds from the continuous fires.
After several months of preparation and study, always in collaboration with the Pyrgos Forest Service (Mr. Lattas) and the Municipality of Ancient Olympia (Mayor Mr. Georgiopoulos), the we4all team together with volunteers from the surrounding areas started a large and ambitious project; The planting of 15,000 trees.
The trees selected based on the study of the forest department were mainly broadleaves, resistant to fires, while creating strong fire zones. They were planted in lands that were deemed reforestable as they had been repeatedly burned.
The trees will be watered for the next years by we4all while within the year the whole project will be completed.
This action becomes a reality with the kind support of Eurobank which is by our side in this important endeavor.
