What is Green Greetings Project?

This project aims to support and publicize activities to preserve A-bombed survivor trees. On August 6, 2005, the 60th year of the atomic bombing, the Chugoku Shimbun carried a message about A-bombed survivor trees. Since then, messages featuring the A-bombed survivor trees have appeared in the Chugoku Shimbun every year on August 6.

In recent years, we have also focused on sightseeing tours and educational content aimed at encouraging people to visit the A-bombed survivor trees.

What are “A-bombed survivor trees?”

“A-bombed survivor trees” refer to approximately 160 trees in Hiroshima, all within a roughly 2km radius of ground zero,registered as trees that budded anew after the A-bomb blast.

Trees with remaining trunks and chickweed growth are included as A-bombed survivor trees. Grafted trees, cuttings, and second-generation seedlings are not included. Private ownership is also excluded for privacy reasons (except for temples and shrines).
