To mark the 96th Anniversary of the Birth of Heydar Aliyev, the National Leader of Azerbaijani nation, the State Committee on Urban Planning and Architecture, in conjunction with the Baku City Executive Power, carried out a tree-planting campaign along the street named after Javanshir, District of Khatai. Over 200 employees per each entity planted about 1000 Eldar pines, Cyprus trees, etc.
Before the campaign, measures were taken to demolish the primitive illegal structures and fences spoiling the general view of the area, and to remove construction materials, stones and other debris as well as to draw water lines to ensure the irrigation of planted trees.
Heydar Aliyev, the architect of independent Azerbaijan, considered environmental protection and improvement of ecological conditions as one of the country’s priority areas of activity.
