Nevsky Shipyard employees planted an oak alley
Workers of Nevsky Shipyard planted oak seedlings on the Shipyard coastal territory. Workers of production workshops (hull-assembly, fitting, ship repair and internal combustion engine repair, pipeline, painting and outfitting, slipway and mechanical engineering workshop) and employees of several production departments planted oak seedlings on Nevsky Shipyard coastal territory.
Fences were made around the seedlings and signs with the number of the workshop and the date of planting were placed. Oak seedlings were not chosen by chance. These trees grow slowly, their first acorns appear only in the thirtieth year of life, and the tree itself can live up to 500 years.
“Planting trees is one of the most important regulators of the planet's biosphere. In addition, it is very important for us to strengthen the coastal territory, because The Factory Island is a bulk one, it is important to prevent land erosion ”- said Ekaterina Panteleeva, ecologist of Nevsky Shipyard.
The purposeful planting of trees is carried out at the enterprise for the first time and, undoubtedly, will become a good tradition, the main purpose of which is to draw attention to the problems of preserving, restoring and increasing forest resources, fostering a respectful attitude towards nature. It is noteworthy that the planting of seedlings was completed on the Day of Environmental Duty.
The Shipyard workers dedicated the tree planting to the 325th anniversary of the fleet.
For reference: Day of Environmental Duty, when humanity will spend all the resources that the Earth can restore in a year. This means that the planet produces a certain amount of resources per year, but humanity borrows and uses these resources much earlier than the end of the year.
