Original title: THE HISTORY OF ONE TREE IN SKOPJE
On April 22, 2019, on the social networks in North Macedonia, a collage of photos began to be shared. The photo shows the change of a tree through several seasons, and the final photo with which the mosaic ends, is the photo in which construction activities are performed at the place of the tree. The information that is shared on social networks indicates that it is an event from Skopje.This news was also published on Republika.mk.

The story that is shared and commented is not from Skopje. In the comments of the post, there are reactions for the same story posted on Twitter in Turkish on August 31, 2018. But the same tweet was shared on July 14, 2018. F2N2 conducted a research and managed to find the initially shared tweet on March 29, 2018.Despite the good intention to raise awareness of Earth Day and environmental protection, still we have to make sure that true information is provided to the citizens.
