BELMONT, Mass. — Since 1994, Armenia Tree Project (ATP) has planted 7 million trees in Armenia and Artsakh. The majority of those trees were planted by ATP’s forestry department, which to date has established 1,500 hectares of new forest in Armenia.
A new film by the renowned director Artak Avetyan examines ATP’s remarkable efforts to reforest the country and mission to use trees to improve the standard of living of its residents.
The English-language version of this short film will premiere on Wednesday, December 14, at 6:30 p.m. at the National Association for Armenian Studies and Research (NAASR) in Belmont.
Tigran Palazyan, ATP’s chief propagator, will be present to answer questions after the film. Light refreshments will be served. Admission is free.
ATP is a non-profit organization that revitalizes Armenia’s and Artsakh’s most vulnerable communities through tree-planting initiatives, and provides socio-economic support and growth. It is based in Yerevan, Armenia and has an office in Woburn, Mass. For more information, visit ArmeniaTree.org.
