Chief of Yerevan Municipality’s Environment Department Roman
Kosemyan said Monday the department had launched a campaign in a
bid to preserve green areas in Armenian capital. First of all, the
municipality officials embarked on measuring green areas and counting
trees in Yerevan.

In his words, in 1986 the capital’s green plantations covered more
than 1,200 hectares. Journalists say now only 500 hectares are covered
by green plantations.
