The Liget project, a reconstruction of the City Park, will heed to protesters' demands and leave all healthy trees in the park untouched, the technical director of project manager Városliget Zrt. told the daily newspaper Lokál.
The project affects about 150-200 trees out of a total of 7,000 found in the park, Attila Sághi said.
Most of these trees are “neither old nor valuable and were planned to be chopped down”, but now in response to protests the company has decided to replant the trees instead, MTI reports.
A public procurement tender will be called for this service in the coming days, he added
The decision not to fell these trees will “cost more money and time” and is professionally not well justified, but if protesters insist, they will hear them out, Sághi said.
