Planting trees in Madeira

Several weeks ago we took part in a very important event: we planted trees. No matter that it’s not a very recent event I still think it’s worth recording in this blog.

It’s important because in 2010 a huge fire burnt more than 10% of forests in Madeira, and the island is still recovering from the catastrophy.

Together with Associação dos Amigos do Parque Ecológico do Funchal we went to Pico Arieiro at the altitude of around 1,8 km and planted trees and bushes endemic for the archipelago.

I hope they will grow well!
