One Day, One Country, Six Million Trees

Macedonia is a country of only two million and they managed to plant six million trees in just one day!

Thousands of Macedonians took to the hills and forests on Wednesday to plant six million trees in a single day as part of a mass reforestation drive in the Balkan country.
The main aim of the campaign was to replant Macedonia’s forests after extensive wild fires over the past two summers, and organisers trumpeted the scheme’s environmental benefits at a time of global warming.
“Our goal is to make Macedonia “greener” and make people more aware of the needs of this planet”, said Macedonian opera singer Boris Trajanov, who initiated the project.
