Tree Avenue of Understanding/Alej porozumění

We regret to inform you that due to the strict hygienic measures, we are forced to cancel the planting of the Tree Avenue of Understanding in Hostivice in its volunteer form opened to the public. The trees you have already contributed to will be planted on the original date by a professional company with the support of the team of Nadace Partnerství and the municipality of Hostivice.

The planted trees will be decorated with flags of the states that have already registered for the event, we will take photos of each individual tree and place the pictures (together with a video greeting from the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic Tomáš Petříček and the organizers) here for download

Each tree will be also provided with a wooden plate, so anyone who bought a tree and wants to visit the venue individually and take their own photo by their tree can sign on the plate with a waterproof marker.

We really appreciate your support and hope that in the spring we will be able to invite you at least for a small picnic in the tree avenue with the Minister of Foreign Affairs Tomáš Petříček, mayor of Hostivice, Franciscans and an arborist, who will demonstrate how to care for trees in the years after planting.

The Tree Avenue of Understanding with 68 deciduous trees will be planted by diplomats alongside with citizens from Hostivice and Jeneč and the Minister of Foreign Affairs Tomáš Petříček on Saturday, October 17. Together, they will restore the extinct footpath (chýňská pěšina) and help the landscape return to its historic character, which had served as a link between Chýně and the neighboring village of Jeneč since immemorial times.

By planting a 700-meter-long alley, diplomats will help realize their countries' commitments to mitigating the effects of climate change. The collective action is also intended to highlight the importance of cooperation and understanding between states in tackling global problems and involving citizens in solving them. The new tree alley will serve as a barrier against strong winds and erosion.

The original footpath, still visible on maps from the 19th century, was destroyed during the period of collectivization and the consolidated land was used for agricultural farming. The renewal of the footpath will divide the large field and support the natural return of animals to the suburban area. To prevent the terminals of newly planted trees from breaking, crutches for predators will be installed along the alley.

The new route will be available not only to the locals, but also to pilgrims coming from the railway station in Jeneč to the Franciscan monastery Hajek.

The planting is organized by the city of Hostivice in cooperation with Nadace Partnerství and under the auspices of Minister of Foreign Affairs Tomáš Petříček. The realization will be ensured by Paměť krajiny.
