Plane Tree No. 198 is located in the King Alexander Boulevard (Revolution Boulevard, as it was known before) in the centre of Belgrade, Serbia.
It was one of the plane trees in the avenue’s line, which were planted as part of war reparations from Germany after WWI. In february 2010, City government decided to reconstruct the Boulevard, which was long overdue already, and to cut down nearly 300 trees in the street – a move somewhat contorversial, and deﬁnitely not approved by the majority of city’s residents. Group protests failed, but Plane Tree No. 198 was fortunate to get it’s own “eco-lawyer”, who managed to save it from being cut down.
An action to try, at least simbolically, to preserve a single plane tree in the Boulevard has grown to become a serious project to actually preserve this tree. Support the project to save Plane Tree No. 198! 🙂
