PROJECT

Carballedo I

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Creation of a sustainable forest ecosystem capable of removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, reducing the risk of water erosion by establishing a sustainable forest cover, increasing biodiversity in the area, and promoting rural development.

Forestation project covering 85.41 hectares located in the Community of Neighborly Commons in Carballedo, in the municipality of Cerdedo‐Cotobade, situated in the province of Pontevedra (Galicia).

This reforestation project, besides ensuring sustainable timber production to meet industry demand and creating a positive socio-economic impact for the local community, will provide significant environmental benefits to help mitigate the effects of climate change. It will contribute to the establishment of a sustainable forest mass where natural regeneration has been unable to take hold, stabilize soils, and facilitate the development and colonization of native plants and animals.

The mix of species used in the reforestation will break the horizontal canopy continuity typical of plantations, often responsible for fire spread.
