The Armenian government decided on Thursday that trees will be planted in a 1,100-hectare area to create a forest around the Sevan National Park till 2023.

According to the project submitted by the Ministry of Nature Protection, it is scheduled to plant vegetable seed trees and shrubs. Around 700 hectares of forest will cover Vardenis, Martuni, Vardenik, Noratus areas, and the rest will cover the non-used agricultural land areas owned by Shorzha, Litchq, Tsovak and other communities in the administrative territory of Gavar Town. In case of favorable conditions, high-value fruit-bearing forest trees are expected to be planted as well.
