This morning the specialists of the Kyiv Ecological and Cultural Center operated a centennial chestnut, which grows at the intersection of the Khmelnytsky Street and the Tereschenkivska Street, ForUm correspondent reports.

According to director of the Kyiv Ecological and Cultural Center Volodymyr Boreyko, the problem of old tree is too heavy trunks (about a ton), which disperse in different directions and may eventually break it.

Experts tied the trunk of chestnut with tight capron rope and poured oil paint in a crack. After a while, it will be plastered.

According Boreyko, after this procedure the chestnut will live another 200-300 years.

"Without the operation, this chestnut would not live up to the first thunderstorm and would break into two parts. This is a very big problem for older trees," Boreyko said.

The chestnut is a natural monument of local importance, which is protected by law. It is the third ancient tree in the capital.

In total, according to Boreyko, about 70 trees in Kyiv need treatment.
