  4. 4. The Codrii There are several things that make life on Earth possible. Among them are forests. They are a major source of oxygen for the air we breath. Without forests the Earth would probably be a totally lifeless planet. We, Moldovans, are lucky to have on this tiny piece of land the cool and shadowy Codrii. The Codrii are hills and valleys covered with forests. Ancient oaks make them look majestic and mysterious. Here we can see poplars, maple trees and the tallest beech with branches as long as 27 metres. There are sunny spots surrounded with acacia and linden trees. The Codrii mean rich orchards and vineyards, ancient villages, streams lined with willows, sweet fragrance of flowers and trills of birds. Winding paths lead to beautiful glades with colourful flowers. Old people still remember the times when a lot of roes, wild boars, foxes, wolves, martens and pheasants lived in this area. Unfortunately most of them have disappeared. Our duty is to protect the Codrii for future generations.
