The city’s initiative of 10 000 Trees focuses on planning the systematic renovation and sustainability of woody plants. Since 2019 we have planted more than 3 200 trees and 6 000 bushes, which is more than the total number of woody plants planted over many previous years put together.
10 000 Trees is part of the city’s programme of adaptation to climate change.
The city of Bratislava needs more trees in parks, as well as on the streets to protect it from over-heating, improve the air quality and mitigate the effects of heavy rainfall, as well as to provide living space for animals and much-needed insects. Tree-lined streets are pleasanter and make the people walking along them more relaxed.
The surveys show that the city’s residents regard greenery as one of the most important issues to deal with, hence it has naturally become a priority for the city management.
