People in Macedonia have planted nearly six million trees
People in Macedonia have planted nearly six million trees this week to compensate for environmental damage inflicted by recent forest fires, a government report said on Friday.

"The main aim of the event is to preserve the environment and to raise people's environmental awareness," the report says.

Over 600 forest fires have destroyed nearly 35,000 hectares of forest, inflicting economic losses of $38 million in the past two years. According to expert estimates, it will take 50 years for the country's ecological system to recover from the disaster.

In a similar nationwide campaign in March, over 200,000 people planted 2 million trees.
