Million Trees Moldova is a national collaboration platform between organizations, institutions and companies that together have proposed to plant one million trees in the Republic of Moldova.
The Million Trees initiative has emerged as an environmental project in different cities, with the goal of increasing shade and oxygen, by planting a million trees. The cities currently involved in this initiative are: Los Angeles, New York City, Shanghai, London, Denver and Ontario. A common reason shared between these cities is to reduce the effects of global warming by reducing the amount of carbon dioxide in the air.
In the case of Moldova, the initiative is aimed at solving and preventing acute environmental problems such as: soil erosion, landslides and desertification, lack of forest curtains for the protection of rivers, agricultural lands and rural wind farms. They are also being planted at educational institutions and other institutions in rural and urban areas
The Million Trees Moldova Initiative started in 2017 at the initiative of the Public Parks Association “Parks of the Future” with the intention of proposing to all those who plant, to unite to highlight the need and urgency of tree plantings and the results obtained together.
