Prague invites the public to adopt a tree

Time and time again, the Czech city of Prague has proven its commitment to the environment.

The capital not only pledged to plant 1 million trees in 8 years, but it also received the European Forest Cities Award 2021 for its environmental efforts. Today, she launched a new project: “Adopt a tree”.

Residents can choose a tree to maintain

The municipality involves citizens, urging them to help the city achieve its green goals. With the launch of his latest green project, he invites residents to choose, adopt and care for a Prague 14 tree.

In a press release from the City of Prague, the municipality notes that “Adopting a tree” is part of a larger project: “Building Prague”. This larger initiative aims to raise awareness of the importance of caring for and protecting greenery in the capital.

The mayor of Prague, Zdeněk Hřib, commented on the city’s efforts and goals: “We promised that we would plant a million trees in Prague in eight years and achieve our plan. So far we have planted 370,000 trees. […] But the care of planted trees is also important. The city is our shared public space, and therefore we invite the public to join in our efforts to make Prague green. “

How to adopt a tree?

Those who wish to help Prague become a greener city by taking care of a tree of their choice, can adopt one through the website. To apply, you must first complete an adoption form. Following this, they will receive a tree adoption certificate, a manual and all the necessary information.

Project author Tomáš Murňák explained that one of the reasons “Adopt a Tree” was launched was the public interest in the state of urban greenery. Because of this interest, Murňák sought to find a way that would allow residents to participate and actively take care of the trees themselves.

If the project proves to be successful, the city will expand it to cover all of Prague.
