The towering plane from Câmpeni
The plane tree from Câmpeni, in the Apuseni Mountains, has an incredible story. At the beginning of 2018, at the initiative of the local authorities, it was marked for felling. The community united around the tree and fought to save it, turning it into a symbol of love for nature and of unity for the community in the Apuseni Mountains, but also for all Romania. In honor of the centenary of Romania,the tree was awarded the title "Romanian Tree of the Year".
