Birch saplings thriving, will be enjoyed from KESKUS

Teade/Update #186

Although not quite yet ready for 'kasevihad', the birch saplings planted almost 3 years ago in Paul Martel Park, across the street from the KESKUS site, are thriving. A tree that was unhealthy and slated for removal that had blocked sunlight to the saplings is now gone and the saplings are enjoying the sunshine. /// Kuigi kasevihtade materjali veel ei anna siit võtta, võrsuvad pea 3 aastat tagasi KESKUSe objekti vastas asuvas Paul Martel pargis istutatud kaseistikud jõudsalt. Naabruses suremas puu, mis oli varjanud istikutele päikesevalgust, on nüüd kadunud ja istikud naudivad päikesepaistet.

The saplings are well cared for by the stewards of Paul Martel Park, headed by Paul Richard. On the above photo with Paul on the left, are Aimar Altosaar, journalist for Postimees in Estonia who is vacationing in Ontario, and Ellen Valter, project lead for KESKUS; insert has Veiko Parming and David Kalm, part of the 2020 planting. /// Istikute eest hoolitsevad hästi Paul Martel Parki korrapidajad eesotsas Paul Richardiga.
