The ceremony saw cypress and carob saplıngs beıng planted near  the village of Tepebasi that was desıgnated for reforestation by Dogan Trekking Group and the Forestry Department.

In an opening speech, President Akinci said that Dogan Trekking Group carried out activities to encourage hiking as a regular activity for a healthy life. "It has now added tree-planting to its activities, which is significant," he said. "The island is poor in terms of forests and trees and such planting is therefore important for the country."

 President Akinci also referred to an environment protection project spearheaded by the Presidency which offered courses relating to climate change, emphasising the importance of tree-planting and the protection of forestland.
