Happy Earth Day!

Here’s eco-consious graffiti by the Branko bridge for earth day.

I’m not sure when this mural went up, but I wonder if it was in 2010. That year, trees along Kralja Aleksander were removed. Officials claimed the trees were blighted, but others believe the decision was hasty, ill-informed, or underhanded. That same year, the Rolling Stones planted four trees behind their stage.

Trees made headlines recently, when cherry tree seeds were distributed at a Thanks to Japan event. Unfortunately, some headlines also mentioned the melee over the free seeds.

I guess Beogradjani are serious about their trees. And why wouldn’t they be? Trees provide shade, produce oxygen and keep soil healthy. Read about the top ten reasons to plant (and keep) trees here.
