Towns in Mangystau, with its semi-desert nature, suffer from lack of greenery. We organized a tree-planting lecture for the pupils of local school in Shetpe. Boys and girls now better understand how much effort is it to plant the trees and how to make it properly.

 
Aksakals from Shetpe brought a van with the water, we bought the tree seedlings.
 
 
Only some sorts of the trees can survive in sandy soil, and only with enough of water.
 
 
The boys observed first, how to properly plant the tree.
 
 
For many of them, it was the first time.
 
 
Pupils will hopefully take care of the trees in future, too.
 
 
Girls were shyer and observed the work only from the distance at the beginning.
 
 
Old tires help the trees to keep the moist.
 
 
It is especially important during very hot and dry summer period.
 
 
It is also a way how to reuse what is considered a waste.

To avoid fast evaporation, it is important to cover the tire by a plastic after watering.
