The place to plant the trees is not accidental: children with lung diseases, left without parental care, are treated in the sanatorium. These children are particularly in need of protection, care and attention. The start of this good tradition by power engineers was back in 2011: while in the premises of the sanatorium the power engineers planted 60 pine seedlings. Employees of IDGC of Centre - Tverenergo division not only planted pine trees, which in future will become a wonderful recreation area for young patients, but also beautified the surrounding area.
