PROJECT

Silvoso A

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

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

Reforestation project covering 85.41 hectares located in the Common Neighboring Forests of Carballedo, in the municipality of Cerdedo-Cotobade, located in the province of Pontevedra (Galicia).

This reforestation project, in addition to ensuring sustainable timber production to meet industry demand, creating a positive socio-economic impact for the local community, will provide significant environmental benefits that help mitigate the effects of climate change, contribute to the establishment of a sustainable forest mass where natural regeneration has not been able to establish itself, stabilize soils, and enable the development and colonization of native plants and animals.

The mix of species used in reforestation will help break the horizontal canopy continuity typical of a plantation and often responsible for fire spread.
