Creation of Grove in Mandra, Avdira
19th and 20th of March 2011
A tree-planting in memory of Lambros Papantoniou was held in collaboration with the Municipality of Avdira and the Xanthi Forest Service on the 19th and 20th of March 2011. During this two-day event in the village of Mandra a four thousand tree grove was planted.
The selected area for the planting was intended to honor the late journalist, who originated from mandra. The trees, including pine and several other varieties, were planted in a one hectare area on the hill of St. Cosmas, where Lambros once lived. The grove is expected to grow and expand to an area of six hectares.
