By the end of the year, the number of trees planted in the Settlement Afforestation Program will reach 56,000, said Zita Kovács, the ministerial commissioner responsible for property policy at the Ministry of Agriculture, said at Farkasgyepű (140 km southwest of Budapest) in Veszprém County, writes agroinform.hu.

She pointed out that 46,000 rowan trees have already been planted in about 1,500 settlements during the past three years of the Settlement Afforestation Program.

This number will continue to rise; by the end of this year, a total of 2,000 settlements will be green with 56,000 trees.

"We are planting trees for the future generations, the children, as part of the Settlement Afforestation Program," Kovács said.
