As one of the largest estates in the city, the University has a responsibility to ensure its green spaces contribute to this unique city environment.
Public access to safe green spaces is one of the priorities of environmental policy of the Khazar University.
Khazar University is proud to take care of many trees across our estate. We recognise the many social, environmental and health benefits that these trees provide
We take the responsibility of taking care of these trees seriously. We regularly monitor tree specimens across the estate to make sure that they are safe and live as long as possible.
Sometimes it is necessary to remove trees, especially for safety reasons or to prevent disease spreading.
Our tree management policy includes a commitment to replacing any tree we have to remove with at least two new trees, often more. Some saplings will take several years before they begin to make the same kind of environmental impact as an existing mature tree. Therefore, whenever possible we plant semi-mature specimens to have a more immediate impact on the local environment.
Green Space of the Buzovna Conference and Leisure Center is land that is partly covered with grass, trees, shrubs, or other vegetation. Green space includes:
We’re committed to maximizing the ecological value of our green space for the benefit of a wide range of plants. Our long term vision is to increase the amount of green space the University has and improve the biodiversity value of the existing estate. We hope to “connect” our estate with other green spaces, green corridors and the wider countryside, for example the Buzovna Park.
Biodiversity has an intrinsic value and is the earth’s life support system. It provides essential services such as clean water and air, crop pollination, coal and timber, natural flood mitigation and helps alleviate the effects of climate change. Culturally, biodiversity provides opportunities for recreation and tourism and contributes to wellbeing.
