The 1430 km2 North York Moors National Park is located in North Yorkshire, a county in the north-east of England. In the spring of 2021, forest plots located on the northern border of the park were restored.
After an initial phase of setting up nurseries and identifying plots of land to be reforested, the Brazilian reforestation project financed by Reforest'Action and led in the field by the NGO Rioterra continued with the planting of 250,000 trees of 34 different native species, between December 2020 and February 2021, in 5 deforested and abandoned plots of land within the protected reserve of Rio Preto Jacundá.
Witnessing massive deforestation and the environmental devastation it causes, village communities are embarking with RENASCEDD, our technical partner based in Conakry, to restore forests in Guinea. Initiated in 2018 with financial support from Reforest'Action, the reforestation project is being conducted on the ground thanks to the commitment of the people who are direct beneficiaries.
In Markelo, a small town located in the province of Overijssel, east of the Netherlands, a forest plot attacked by bark beetles was successfully reforested. Thanks to our reforest’actors, the stand is now strengthened and composed of diverse hardwood and softwood species.
This is one of the new forestry projects financed by Reforest'Action in 2021: led in the field by Breedekloolf Wine and Tourism, the reforestation of the banks of the Breede and Berg rivers, in the south-west of the country, will allow the restoration of an endangered ecosystem by fighting the invasion of exotic vegetation and planting 40 different endemic species. Discover the stakes of the project and a new video shot by our local partner.
In the Dordogne region, south-west of France, the Saint-Geyrac forest has come back to life after two difficult decades. The reforestation project conducted during winter 2020-2021 led to the planting of more than 19,000 trees on 16 damaged plots.
In Kenya, the new rainy season, starting in April 2021, is favourable to the resumption of plantations in the Mount Kenya region. The aim of the project is to support local communities in restoring deforested areas of Mount Kenya and to develop agroforestry on their farmland in order to secure their food supply. Currently, 250,000 trees are being planted. Find out more about the project.
In 2017, a storm devastated the northern and western parts of Poland. As a result, nearly 80,000 hectares were ravaged. Three years later, this reforestation intends to restore a heavily affected forest massif situated in the municipality of Lipusz.
