A Chinese proverb tells us that if we want to plant for a year, we should plant rice and if we want to plant  for a decade, we should plant trees…. Well, we hoped to plant for a much longer period than that. 🙂

So, here’s a glimpse of our planting efforts in the Retezat National Park Romania, late Octomber 2oo8 and in Cluj-Napoca, April 2009.

We had great help and enthusiasm from all over the country “Paper Tree” – Media Org volunteers, as well as EVS ones and local high schoolers that wanted to dedicate their time and energy to join us.

On our way, prepared to plant the trees…

Happily planting in the Retezat National Park 🙂

Per total, during both actions, we planted over 2000 trees! how cool is that? 😉

If you have similar actions, please, share them with us!
