Martirosyan, deputy chairman of the organization of congress's youth
associations, told Armenpress that tree planting, dedicated to the
100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide, will launch March 31. A

to take every opportunity to arrive in the homeland and plant trees
in memory of their ancestors.
