Okolí Athén bude opět zalesněno

Po katastrofických požárech roku 2007 a 2009 bude rozhodnutím nově zřízeného MŽP Řecka znovu zalesněno množství pozemků s vypálenými lesy. Doufejme, že v létě nebude zase vypáleno, to co ještě zbylo....

The Environment Ministry of Greece yesterday heralded an ambitious scheme to reforest some 10,000 hectares of burnt forestland on the outskirts of Attica.

The replanting is to begin over the next few days in parts of eastern Attica that have been particularly badly scorched in successive forest fires over the years and where regeneration has been a very slow process or has not taken hold at all, Deputy Environment Minister Thanos Moraitis said.

The project, which is expected to cost some 45 million euros over the next four years, will be the largest and most ambitious in Greece.

The reforestation will be undertaken by specialist firms while authorities are also considering using guards to protect the reforested areas from vandals and other threats.

He said that the ministry was appealing to citizens and businesses to join reforestation drives, though it remained unclear what form volunteer participation would take and who would coordinate it.

Moraitis noted that reforestation would begin on the "easy parts" .

November, Environment Minister T.Birbili unveiled a draft law according to which any areas of forestland ravaged by fires will be immediately included in a forest map of the respective region. In Attica, the process of drawing up forest maps is to focus solely on whether the affected areas should be designated as forestland and will not extend to other matters, such as ownership of the land.
