550 poplar trees for Eastern Imperial Eagles in Bulgaria

4. January 2011

Lack of suitable trees for nesting is a serious problem for Eastern Imperial Eagles in some parts of it’s range. Because of this nest platforms are often built in weak trees to help the eagles to build a stable nest.
In the long term, it is important to plant suitable trees. In Western Strandja in Bulgaria, BSPB volunteers afforested 1,4 ha of black poplars near one of the Imperial Eagle nests. In the long term, those trees will provide suitable nesting platforms for the Eastern Imperial Eagle and other raptors.
