Help the communities of the Guizhou province restore ecosystems and improve their standard of living ! Le projet en un coup d'œil
- Number of trees to be planted: 1 616 000
- Species planted: Chinese honey locust, Cypress, Chinese fir et Toona
- Planting period: from February 2022 to 2024
Due to its rapid economic development as well as population and agriculture growth, the preservation and restoration of forest ecosystems in China is now a top priority. Located in the vicinity of Guangzhao town, in the province of Guizhou, the project plans to plant more than one million trees over the next three years.
The project unfolds on public plots that cover a total area of 600 hectares around Dongfanghong and Zhebu villages.
In order to restore the land’s ecological properties as well as the biodiversity of the area, 1.62 million trees of 4 species native to the region are planted.
The project :
With the help of the environmental company Guangxi Chongzuo Linda Forestry, 1,616,878 trees are planted over three years on former degraded agricultural plots, in order to revive perennial ecosystems. In the long term, this emerging forest, composed of native species, will limit soil erosion and restore the ecological properties of the land.
The diversity of species that compose the forest will help ensure the resilience of the stand to potential climatic or biological hazards.
In the area, the presence of trees, including a fruit species, will contribute to the development of habitats for fauna and flora in the area, that are essential to ensure the stability and adaptability of ecosystems to environmental variations.
On the socio-economic level, this approach will support the economic development of the rural populations living in the area, particularly through the commercialisation of honey from Chinese Beech trees. To facilitate the development of this new economic activity, a road network of 8 kilometers will be built to link the different zones of the project.
