Elementary school Banija, Karlovac, Croatia, this year participated in project „Trees of Europe 2019“.
Students that participated in the GLOBE program planted the beech with the help of other students
and our janitor. We also made her ID. Her latin name is Fagus Sylvatica Atropurpurea. She's a symbol
of tolerance, patience, easiness of mind and word. As the beech can grow up to 7 meters, it is a
symbolic link between heaven and earth. After planting, janitor told us story about growing the tree
– from seed to young plant.
