PROJECT

Covas

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Create a forest ecosystem capable of absorbing CO2, thereby reducing air pollution, protect the soil by creating a sustainable forest cover, and provide a habitat for biodiversity.

Forest repopulation project of 5.77 hectares located in the Comunidad de Montes Vecinales en Mano Común de Covas, in the municipality of Cerdedo-Cotobade, province of Pontevedra (Galicia).

This reforestation project aims to establish a forest mass that ensures a wide variety of ecosystem services in the area, such as the provision of raw materials, water cycle regulation, soil protection, carbon dioxide removal from the atmosphere, biodiversity of animal and plant species, and various recreational opportunities.

The main species used is Pinus radiata, which is fast-growing and adapted to the climatic conditions of this region. Due to its high growth rate, this plant can quickly accumulate a large amount of organic matter and nutrients in the soil. Additionally, the reforestation includes a perimeter band of deciduous trees that acts as a natural barrier against the recurrent fires in the region.
