Thousands of trees to be planted in five sites on public land

Environment Minister Jose Herrera has announced that in the next few weeks thousands of endemic Maltese trees will start to be planted at sites identified by the Maltese Government as part of a forestation project.

sigarMinister Herrera was speaking at the Malta Armed Forces’ Lyster Barracks in Ħal Far where an activity was underway for students. A total of 500 trees have already been planted at this site thanks to the sponsorship of Simply Holdings.

The planting of these trees will take place at Wied Santa Katerina in Burmarrad,  in Baħar iċ-Ċagħaq, in the Swatar area of Msida, in Swater in front of Mater Dei as well as at Wied Blandun in Cospicua.

Dr Herrera said that apart from these five sites, the Government is working on planting trees at other sites. However, before this forestation takes place, an analysis is taking place to ensure that the land is all public. At the same time the Government will be planting more trees in areas such as Ġnien l-Għarusa tal-Mosta and Buskett.
