Kuwait Times - - FRONT PAGE -

DOHA: Desert state Qatar is to grow 16,000 trees for the 2022 foot­ball World Cup to plant round sta­di­ums as part of the tour­na­ment’s “legacy”, or­ga­niz­ers an­nounced yes­ter­day. The trees will be grown at an 880,000-sq-m nurs­ery in the north­ern part of Qatar, then re­planted close to the foot­ball sta­di­ums in the run-up to the tour­na­ment in six years’ time. More than 60 types of trees will be used, most promi­nently the sidra, which has grown in the harsh Qatari desert for many gen­er­a­tions, but also fi­cus and aca­cia. Wa­ter will be sup­plied by a sewage treat­ment site close to the nurs­ery in Al-Shamal.
