I n mid-July, on our way to Târgu-Jiu, we had the surprise of discovering a forest that did not resemble anything we had seen before. This is the Dumbrava forest in the village of Poienari, where the trees no longer have gray or brown trunks but are dressed in the most intense shades of green, blue, violet, white, yellow and red.

But who and why?

 

Responsible for this picture, as if from the scenarios of director Tim Burton, is the artist Mihai Ţopescu, who, along with a handful of volunteers, aimed to draw attention on abusive deforestation, the project being also an invitation to rediscover the beauty in nature.

The approximately 600 little trees have now become the main attraction in the area, and daily, you see cars with curious tourists who break for a few minutes to photograph them or walk through the most colorful forest. So, if the road takes you on DN67, it would be a pity not to stop, at least for a little bit, in the fairy forest in Poienari.
