400 pine seedlings in Turkey


We are TR02 Hilal Necmiye Husnu Ataberk Ilkogretim Okulu from Izmir, Turkey. We planted 400 "pinus pinea" trees in our International Peace Day. As you knew, we have planted about 13.000 tress since the year 2004, when we first attended to ENO. We found a new place this year in another small village in Izmir named Urla. We started with 400 trees. Our aim is to build another forrest includes 10.000 trees more.

Our national TV channel TRT (Turkish Radio Television) and another local channel Ege TV were with us during the ceremony. Besides, the Governor of our city was also with us not by himself buy by a messenger. Aegean Forrest Foundation was with us with its president. The place Urla is little far from our school. (About 1 hour) That's why, we went there with our only 20 students, our school manager Yilday Kandemir, who is also the ENO manager in our school, me, our Assistant Managers and some techers were with us.

It was a great ceremony. Again I want to say that, our students are very proud because of they are a part of such a great family.

Love from Turkey.
