The Romanian state-agency tasked with the protection, preservation and development of publicly owned forests, Romsilva, is undertaking a campaign to plant around 3.5 million tree saplings with the aim of reforesting around 2,727 hectares of land owned by the state. 

Mediafax have reported that the majority of the reforestation works are focused in the plain areas in the south of the country and in the meadow and Danube and Delta areas. This follows on from a spring campaign during which Romsilva managed to regenerate 11,899 hectares of forest land and planted a total of 21.9 million saplings. 

Although the campaign may have had success in regenerating certain areas, it must be kept in mind that Romsilva manages a total of 31.3 million hectares of forests in Romania, about 48% of the country’s total forest. The organisation also manages 22 national parks.
