To be exact, Oreanda Hotel staff planted 12,900 new trees on 23 October. That Saturday 80 hotel employees went to a Yalta forest preserve to help renew plantations damaged by fire. The Yalta forest preserve covers 14,523 hectares in the Crimean Mountains. The many sights there include the mountain peak Ai Petri (1,234 m), the Uchan-Su waterfall, the Three Eyes Cave and the Thunder Stairs Pass.
The team planted two-year-old saplings of Crimean pine on a territory covering 1.3 hectares, and even more pines could have been planted since the team worked quickly and excitedly, but they simply ran short of saplings.
This initiative is a part of the Premier Hotels 'Happy World' social responsibility programme, which is aimed at preserving the environment and effective use of natural resources. The next step of the programme that is planned in Oreanda Premier Hotel is to raise money for orphanages and children's hospitals in Crimea region.
