Macedonia seeds hope in 5 million new trees
"The people really enjoy being out in the fresh air and having fun planting trees."
- Boris Trajanov, Tree Day leader
Skopje, Macedonia - Campaign season has arrived in Macedonia, with presidential and municipal elections next Sunday.
On that first showing a year ago, more than 150,000 Macedonians planted 2 million trees in one day (symbolically, one for each citizen). Six million more were planted in November. Saturday’s event saw a combined 5 million trees planted nationwide by a diverse network of volunteers.
