The Finnish forestry company Tornator has organized a reforestation and tree planting event, together with the Embassy of Finland in Bucharest on 31 October, to raise awareness of the importance of sustainable, responsible, conflict free and multi-functional use of the forests, the embassy informed.
On the occasions of celebrating the 100th anniversary of Finland’s Independence on December 6th, 2017, and the upcoming 100th anniversary of Romania’s Great Union Day on December 1st, 2018 – Tornator donated 100 trees to Romania in the Municipality of Oituz in the presence of the Ambassador of Finland, Mrs. Päivi Pohjanheimo, who conveyed the message of the Embassy of Finland, and the company’s most important stakeholders and partners.
In addition to these symbolic gift trees, which were planted by the participants during the day, Tornator will plant one hundred thousand tree seedlings in the forests managed by the company in Romania in collaboration with its business partners and the forestry students of the University of Transylvania in Brasov.
Besides the sustainable forestry, Tornator has installed plenty of game cameras in the forests in order to monitor the area’s game populations, which have been in constant rise. In Tornator’s forests a Finnish style right of public access is also applied when it comes to the berry or mushroom picking or just enjoying the surrounding nature. Littering is of course strictly forbidden.
