During the spring reforestation campaign, forestry workers planted 116.4 million seedlings on a total area of 16,897.7 hectares, of which 1,366.7 ha were afforestation (planting of new forests). Forest plantations created in previous years were also supplemented on an area of 13174.6 ha.
A total of 174.8 million forest plants were planted during the year of the "Green Country" program. Recall that the major part of the plan is carried out in spring.
Details by region (numbers cover planting in autumn 2021 and spring 2022):
"The war has had a negative impact on the dynamics of the environmental initiative, but this spring we have continued to plant young forests wherever possible. The logic is simple: we continue to live in this country. We take care of our environment. Regarding the budget for the "Green Country" program: the planting is funded by the forest enterprises. In addition, we have sponsors and the public getting involved. Thank you, friends! This is our common result," said Yuriy Bolokhovets, Head of the State Forest Resources Agency of Ukraine.
