Since the beginning of spring, intensive tree planting works have been taking place on the streets of Vilnius. By the end of June, 2110 trees will be planted, 41,7 thousand. bushes. Lanes between the roadway and pedestrian and bicycle paths are densely planted, thus creating a green dust and air pollution barrier. And the traffic roundabouts will bloom with roses, perennial flowers are planted in the squares.

"Last year, we planted about 2,3 thousand trees throughout the year. trees and 44 thousand bushes. This year we plan to plant as much during the spring planting. Great attention is paid to busy streets, such as Geležinio Vilkos, Savanorių pr. for the greening of dividing lanes, small groups of trees are formed in them - like mini urban forests", he said Vilnius city municipalities Head of the City Environment Department Gintautas Runovičius.

Scientific research shows that green strips of trees and shrubs can effectively contribute to the reduction of traffic noise and pollution, have a cooling effect, and absorb rainwater. If there is a distinguishing dense strip of greenery, the impact of pollution and noise is several times lower when walking even near a busy street than without a green strip.

To reduce traffic noise and air pollution, greening and middle separation lanes are done. In the spring, 6,4 km of dividing lanes will be planted. A continuous strip of trees has already been planted in a 1 km section of Savanorių avenue. On Geležinios Vilkos Street (from Žalgiris Street) in the middle lane, adding to the already existing massifs of bushes, urban forest-type islands and sections of various types of larger and smaller trees and shrubs will be created. About 1750 tree saplings and about 5 trees will be planted here. bushes.

The green lane will appear on Panerių Street, which is being reconstructed. The old poplars will remain in it, 40 new narrow-leaved poplars and over 7000 bushes will be planted. The existing poplars will be pruned - their crowns will be lightened, thereby reducing the chance of them being overturned by the wind, and reducing the possibility of breaking branches.

In Pilaite more than 40 birch trees were planted near Elbing Street. They will form and partially compensate for the old birch alley lost during the widening of the street.  

Multi-species planting

22 types of trees are planted in the capital. Species are selected based on which trees grow naturally in a specific place, are resistant to urban conditions.

Over 30 types of shrubs have been planted for several years, which have already proven themselves and perfectly adapt to the changing conditions of the city. "Biological diversity is promoted in this way, plants get sick less often and not so massively from various diseases, they are less attacked by pests," says Dovilė Ivanauskienė, advisor of "Vilnius City Parks", which is planning the greening of the city.

For several years, berry-bearing trees and bushes have been planted - mountain ash, chokeberry. This is done so that the birds will return to the city and have something to feed them.
