The results are out! Infrastructure Malta planted no less than 22,162 trees last year, with a total expenditure of €4,400,000, said transport minister Ian Borg yesterday.

According to the minister, new trees and shrubs were planted in 65 areas in 35 localities and the numbers showed the government’s commitment to tree-planting and the environment.

“We are continuing to water and take care of them until they are established in their environment,” wrote the agency in a Facebook post announcing the great news!

During the first half of the year, the agency worked with Caritas Malta to form Bosk it-Tama, translated to Grove of Hope, a brand new space for reflection within the grounds of the San Blas Therapeutic Community, by planting 352 indigenous trees and shrubs, as well as by installing a new irrigation system.

Infrastructure Malta also worked with the Archdiocese of Malta to improve the roof garden at the Archbishop’s Seminary in Tal-Virtu in Rabat, with 730 trees, shrubs and plants!

Other locations include school grounds, areas around the University of Malta and the Institute of Tourism Studies, as well as open spaces managed by the Archdiocese of Malta, local scout groups and sports clubs.

Where do you think Infrastructure Malta needs to plant trees next?
