Specialists and environmentalists warn that the capital of Armenia, Yerevan, is in the semi-desert zone. The city is in urgent need of large-scale landscaping and revision of construction rules.
The attitude of the city authorities, however, continues to be consumerist. Preference is given to concrete at the expense of trees. An example can serve the trees cut down in Mashtots Park these days.
