Kentico Developers Turning into Foresters
41 trees so far – which developer will have to plant the most trees?
Of course, the initial question won’t be answered due to the confidential nature of the information. I can only say that the most 'bug-free' developer has only 5 trees to plant
, while the one who 'likes nature the most' has 13 trees on his bill
. For this reason, the “How to plant a tree” book is now available in our company library. Well-educated employees make all the difference… ;)
Just yesterday, we chose the place where the trees will be planted together with The Czech Environmental Partnership Foundation
. It’s my pleasure to introduce to you the village of Snovídky
(population of 355) where the alley of Kentico Trees will be raised! The village is in the South Moravian Region
of the Czech Republic, just about 31 miles (50km) from Kentico headquarters
The area is currently used as a park/recreational area
within the village. Since 2006, the NGO “Šuterňa” has looked after the space to provide a pleasant place for locals and visitors to meet, exercise, rest and play. They welcome our financial and physical support and also committed themselves to taking care of the trees planted by Kentico in the years to come.
We will plant the trees at “Šuterňa” just one week after the deadline of the bug submissions - on Saturday 7th of November
. Species of the trees were selected in order to restore the original vegetation in the area.
They are listed in the following table:
Binomial name: Prunus domestica
Slivovice (Plum Brandy), made from the fruits of the tree, is the most common and favorite homemade distillate in the region. It's believed to be a universal medicine covering all illnesess and even injuries.
Wild/Sweet cherry or Gean
Binomial name: Prunus avium
Tradition in the Czech Republic says that a man should kiss his girlfriend/ wife under a blooming cherry tree on the 1th of May. This ensures she stay in good health and that heir love lasts at least for the remainder of the year.
Midland/Woodland hawthorn or Mayflower
Binomial name: Crataegus laevigata
The leaves and fruit of this tree are used in the pharmaceutical industry as they positively affect the heart and blood circulation.
