"Sun(Taiyo)-nurtured Forest of Imabari City"; Taiyo Oil organizes 4th Forest Regeneration Volunteer Activity

Taiyo Oil organized "Sun(Taiyo)-nurtured Forest of Imabari City", the 4th Forest Regeneration Volunteer Activity on Saturday 17 March in Imabari City, Ehime Prefecture.

This was the 4th time the Activity was organized, and the first time in two years, after the activityscheduled for March 26 (Sat) last year was canceled following the Great East Japan Earthquake.
The day of the event was met by rainfall that continued from the previous day, and forest regeneration activities aimed at creating a multi-layered forest had to be canceled. Instead, only the learning activities were organized, aimed at promoting an understanding of the importance of nature through interaction with the local residents.

Taiyo Oil concluded an agreement with Ehime Prefecture and Imabari City on "the corporate afforestation activities". The Forest Regeneration Volunteer Activity was organized through the "Sun(Taiyo)-nurtured Forest of Imabari City", named to reflect the aspirations of "Taiyo Oil employees to voluntarily regenerate and nurture the forest". Taiyo Oil will remain committed to forest regeneration activities.
