A tree for every newborn
A regional law says that every town must plant a tree for each newborn baby. So my daughter, born in 2003, has her tree and now and then we go to pay a visit and see how it is growing (well!). We are now waiting for my son's tree, he is born in 2005 but his tree has not been planted yet (the town council waits to have a good number of trees to plant and organizes a very nice feast for everyone when this gest done).
The picture shows how many trees have been planted and in which streets/fields for the children born from year 1992 to year 2003: almost a thousand.
