Czech city of Most will be greener thanks to tree-planting supported by Unipetrol

Czech Republic’s largest refinery and petrochemical company Unipetrol will plant 110 trees in Šibeník Park, together with the town of Most, as part of the Unipetrol to People campaign.

In the campaign, which started last autumn, inhabitants of the Most area submitted and chose projects to be supported by Unipetrol. Three projects made it to the finals: a public wi-fi network in selected locations, tree-planting and a dog park. The locals voted for one winning project and chose the tree-planting idea in which Unipetrol has invested 1 million koruna (36,600 euros).

“Each year, we provide support to the neighbouring towns and municipalities, non-profit organisations, schools and various social, cultural and sports events,” reminded Katarzyna Woś, Vice-Chair of the Board of Directors of the Unipetrol Group.

The new trees in Šibeník Park in Most will have a positive impact on the local microclimate. They will help create a pleasant space for short relaxation, sport, or meeting with friends and neighbours. European hornbeam, sessile oak, and linden tree will be planted in the park.

“The city of Most will be even greener thanks to the winning project,” added the Mayor of Most, Jan Paparega. “But that’s not all, planting activities are taking place in other areas in the city. These days, trees are being planted at Matilda and in the near future there will be also planting of suitable trees at the beach of Lake Most.”
