Where we plant Tomorrow’s Forest in 2018

This spring, Tomorrow’s Forest is preparing the regeneration of six areas, as well as completion works for a piece of land that was reforested in spring last year. In total, we will plant approximately 142,600 seedlings.

Most of the project areas are remote, with difficult work conditions. The mobilisation of the local community and volunteers in the region will take place for the projects in Dorna Candrenilor (Suceava County) and Dumbravita (Brasov County). In the rest of cases, the work will be performed entirely by forest management units and/or specialised companies contracted by them.
