Merești Planting

The area of 3 hectares on which the planting action took place is administered by the Zetea Forest Management and is part of the Natura 2000 Dealul Homoroadelor site. The forest did not naturally recover and the owners lack the necessary funds for reforestation.

End of April 2018, about 15,000 seedlings of sessile oak, cherry, linden, elm, chestnut, larch, pine, crab apple and wild pear have been planted.

The Zetea Forest Management will supervise the completion and maintenance until 2023 in order to ensure the complete regeneration of the replanted forest.
