The August 11 fire in Syunik stretched to 12 hectares of forest, out of which 4 hectares were juniper forests in Arevik National Park. We can find out this information on Climate Uturn's Facebook page.
“The junipers were 400-800 years old, and the new trees will grow in about 100 years. The air near the juniper forest is clearer. The great fire is dangerous to humans, it pollutes the air a lot. Houses nearby are in a danger zone. Animals are directly endangered. Arevik, for example, is home to Caucasian leopards," the Climate Uturn post says.
