Young Korean pines take root in the Land of Leopard

31 october 2011
Over 70% of 576 000 Korean pine seedlings planted this spring in the southwest Primorye as part of a large scale joint campaign of WWF and Citibank took root in the Land of Leopard.

The figure was proved by Primorsky Province specialists in forestry in the course of the fall inventory of the trees planting.

In late October, the campaign “Plant a Forest for Leopard” went on in the form of experiment. The group of people under the direction of Elena Nikitenko, head of forest restoration unit of the Far Eastern Forestry Research Institute, planted Korean pines in bio groups in an experimental plot in Khasanskii district of Primorye.

“It is important for us to evaluate the opportunities to further plant trees in autumn, to learn how to choose the place for the fall planting, and to understand the chances of using outsized planting stock,” comments Egor Likhachev, forest restoration projects coordinator at WWF Russia Amur branch.

Main planting will be continued in spring 2012.
