Request for help via the European Arboricultural Council
Dear EAC Members,
We have been contacted by Gleb Tolkachikov who is a worker in the forestry sector and also a volunteer in tree planting activities in the City of Minsk/Belarus. He faces a huge problem: the stealing, respectively digging out of trees after planting them in the city. Do you happen to have any similar experiences? If so, how do you solve the problem?
Are there any systems available to protect trees from theft?
Video cameras do not serve this purpose at all. Gleb wonders if adding gravel to the ground while planting trees might help. What is your opinion?
Should you have any helpful ideas or experiences, kindly respond to Tolkachikov89@mail.ru.
Thank you so much for your kind support!
