Jánosik és Társai Kft. plants, maintains and replaces trees in North-East Hungary. They won the outdoor works in public procurement tenders – informed Lajos Jánosik, the owner of the company.
The fact that the company performs similar work in the area of three national parks, with good references, helped to won the tender. Last year, more than 50,000 saplings were planted. The main purpose of the current planting is to strengthen the European roller population of the Carpathian Basin by creating new living and breeding sites. The saplings are placed into plantation pits created with a high degree of care, using a planting medium mixed with soil improvers. In the course of the work, more than 1,000 native saplings – amongst others, white poplar and pedunculate oak – will be planted. The placed out saplings must also be protected from damages caused by wild animals, for which special trunk protectors are used. The work is done continuously by 15 employees of the company. They are equipped with special machines and transport tools in the work area. This year they prepare the terrain, plant the trees, and in the next two years, they will take care about and irrigate the planted saplings, and hoe and mow the area, as needed. During the work, special attention is paid to the protection of the wild flora and fauna. The implementation of the task is hampered by the natural features of the area, such as the saline soil or the swampy, marshy areas.
The share of the outdoor sector is nearly 5 percent of the revenues of the company exceeding a turnover level of 10 billion forints, said Lajos Jánosik.
