Planting trees in unused area

Measures Heatstress

Created at: 18 Apr 2021


This space is located next to a house. When the people moved in there 20 years ago this area was an unused communal space next to the house with nothing there. So the people asked the municipality if it is permitted to plant some trees. 20 years later this tree cluster has been created. In the whole area around there have been planted almost 60 trees. Pear trees, orange trees and angelica trees host a lot of bees during spring and summer. The trees also host different kinds of birds and contribute against heat stress.
