THE PRICE OF EVERY TREE
The temperature difference in different parts of the city is achieved by compensating through trees/green spaces. And this is the general thought behind Bishkek's civic ecologists' research.
In Bishkek, they can turn to specialists in landscaping for courses on pruning and tree care. The ARCHA Initiative Foundation insists - it is better to come to the training as a team of 3 people at once: a housekeeper, a gardener and a resident-activist. Then they will no longer have to call in city services, which only demolish the tops of healthy trees and leave them without a crown. The microclimate in bedroom communities suffers from such pruning, the air is not humidified and purified sufficiently, and living conditions worsen. This leads to increased ecological disparities
Bishkek, home to more than a million people, is now an environmental disaster. According to reports, the level of air pollution in some places in Bishkek exceeds the maximum allowable norms by 14 times!
