The citizens of Turkmenistan enthusiastically responded to an appeal by President Gurbanguly Berdymukhamedov to hold a nationwide tree-planting action on March 21, the Neutral Turkmenistan newspaper reported.
For example, almost half a million seedlings of various trees were planted in Mary velayat. The landscaping in the Murghab valley has turned the planting sites into comfortable recreational areas.
Another green area will soon appear on the left bank of the Karakum River a few kilometers from the velayat center, along the Mary-Serhetabat highway. It was here that the traditional Labor Festival was held, during which 1,200 seedlings of thuja, arugula, mulberry and poplar were planted on four hectares.
