The event for Sapling planting at Esenboğa Airport employees was like a festival where the employees and participants enjoyed the complimentary offerings of gözleme and ayran prepared and cooked by Cubuk Municipality within the tents.

Çubuk Mayor Tuncay Acıhan said: “I am so glad to be here and a part of this meaningful organization. TAV Esenboğa has served as a model with this Memorial Forest which was established in 2008. It starts only with one sapling to transform Capital City Ankara to Green Ankara and it is very important to raise this awareness. We, as Çubuk Municipality, endeavor to prevent concretion. Together with TAV Esenboğa, we have planted 10,000 new saplings today, so our forest has grown to house 30,000 trees. I find this growth a significant gain for Ankara, particularly for Çubuk."

Within this context, we are proud that 'TAV Esenboğa Memorial Forest' project, which we initiated in 2008 to support the preservation of our country's natural heritage, has turned into a wide green area housing 30,000 trees. Today, we planted 10,000 additional tree saplings together with our employees in the memorial forest, which we started with 1,500 saplings at first and has increased this number up to 20,000 in time. We are glad that we support the awareness of increasing the green areas by the continuously expanding memorial forest that we established for our Capital.”
