PROJECT

Quireza

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Creation of a forest ecosystem in an area deteriorated after a fire in order to reestablish the vegetation, recovering the functionality of both the soil and the flight and promoting the removal of CO, thus mitigating the effects of global warming.

Forest repopulation project of 19.43 hectares located in the Comunidad de Montes Vecinales en Mano Común de Quireza, in the municipality of Cerdedo-Cotobade, situated in the province of Pontevedra (Galicia).

This forest repopulation project aims for the comprehensive restoration of the project area, facilitating the establishment of a new tree mass and thereby contributing to biodiversity conservation, generating a positive impact on the local economy, and promoting sustainability.

The main species used is Pinus radiata. Additionally, a perimeter strip of native deciduous trees has been introduced to break the horizontal continuity, acting as a natural firebreak in case of fire.
