The origin of the project

In the Dordogne department, in the communes of La Douze and Saint Geyrac, this assisted natural regeneration project follows several initiatives to restore damaged forests. Over the past 4 years, Reforest'Action has accompanied several reforestation projects belonging to this owner.

The plots involved in this project had been in natural evolution for nearly 20 years and were overgrown with competing vegetation.

The goal of the project is to restore silvicultural activity in the area to facilitate tree growth. In fact, the competing vegetation will be limited and the existing diversity will be enhanced. The trees will support the wood industry and support the development of biodiversity, essential to the natural development of ecosystems.

The Assisted Natural Regeneration

Assisted Natural Regeneration (ANR) is a natural method that helps preserve and strengthen existing forests through management that combines the trees’ natural reproduction cycle with silviculture work. To find out more about our ANR projects, read our brochure or watch the explanatory video.

Generated benefits

  • Fight against climate change: trees provide fruit, fodder, wood, resins, tannins etc. Once planted, they regulate temperatures through the shade of their foliage. Carbon sinks, they store CO₂ and are valuable allies in the fight against global warming. They restore soil fertility and prevent soil erosion.
  • Development of biodiversity: agroforestry promotes biodiversity and provides multiple habitats and species. Micro-organisms, fauna and flora participate in the restoration of an ecological network. They provide refuges for birds that regulate pest populations on crops.
  • Protection of territories: the trees regenerated in agroforestry help to protect the land from extreme weather events. By creating shaded areas, the trees preserve the crops during the dry season and provide them with a protective cover during the rainy season.
  • Soil enrichment: the leaves fallen from the trees will allow the creation of organic matter that will enrich the soils and contribute to the proper functioning of the forest ecosystem.
  • Wood supply: eventually, some mature trees may be harvested to supply the timber industry, economic lung that needs to operate a sustainable energy transition.
  • Soil nutrition: trees retain rainwater on the soil surface and filter it before it enters the water table. Thus, forest canopies regulate the water cycle and help preserve the planet's water resources.
