The Red Forest  is the 10-square-kilometre  area surrounding the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant within the Exclusion Zone. The name "Red Forest" comes from the ginger-brown colour of the pine trees after they died following the absorption of high levels of radiation from the Chernobyl accident on 26 April 1986.  In the post-disaster cleanup operations, the Red Forest was bulldozed and buried in "waste graveyards".  Source
