“Once upon a time there was a big bad wolf … and a BIG forest!”
Trees are the oldest living beings in the world.
Trees give us oxygen, food and medicine. They provide energy, shadow
and strength. Trees also give peace and beauty.
The trees can have mystery and the children can imagine everything
about them: a talking tree, trees hugging them, trees singing with the wind
and birds dancing with trees…
Trees are very very important and essential in our lives!
Stop destroying trees!
Plant a tree!

TREES FOR EUROPE 2019 IN OUR SCHOOL
At first we wanted to plant an olive tree to symbolise peace between the nations of Europe but it wouldn’t grow well in our climate. Since our region is famous for its apple orchards, as a compromise, we have finally chosen an apple tree ‘Yellow Olive’ which is now visited by bees and will soon bear sweet yellow fruits.
Our community enjoyed the project very much. All the students, their families and my teaching colleagues got involved. We not only planted the tree but also organised events such as European Song Festival, creating Kahoot! quizzes about Europe during the lessons and a charity market with food typical for six different European countries. We are going to join Trees For Europe in the future as well to create a school orchard.

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.
