Around 550 volunteers have chosen to come to Aricestii Rahtivani and plant 10,350 trees. Overall the trees cover an area of 6 hectares. Last year volunteers have planted other trees and this year several completions have been made to the forest. The next step is to care for the forest and to complete the planting with trees for the next 7 years. After 7 years the forest will be complete and the next 7 years will be spent monitoring the area so it can become a green area for the community. Not only individual volunteers have come to help but also several companies have brought their employees for special teambuilding events.
