  • Type of project: Restoration of forests degraded by fires

Context et benefits

This project covers several areas. The latter are all degraded by fires. The lack of resources for management and poor natural regeneration requires action and plantation:

 

  • Marvao - District of Portoalegre

​Within the Serra de Sao Mamede Natural Park, 12,170 trees are being planted in an area devastated by a fire in 2003. The project covers more than 23 hectares and will restore the dynamics of this mountain forest ecosystem.

  • Meda - Guarda District

This area is desert and the massifs that populated this rocky land were devastated in 2016 by a fire. Regeneration is very insufficient in this very rocky area. The planting of 11,467 trees on an area of about 24 hectares will help to revive the population.

  • Maçao - Santarem District

2,884 trees are planted on 2.3 hectares in the Ocreza Archaeological Park. The area was devastated in 2003 by a fire. 

 

  • Abrantes - Santarém District

​This massif was damaged twice by a first fire in 2003 and a second in 2017. There are 3,581 trees planted on an area of about 3.5 hectares.
