Tierra Pura

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Restoration of an Atlantic forest ecosystem in an area degraded by fire, aimed at reestablishing native flora and fauna, restoring the functionality of both the soil and the canopy, and promoting CO2 removal to mitigate the effects of global warming.

Together with the Pure Earth Foundation, and supported by the Cabify Foundation and Glovo, we are developing a project to repopulate ecosystems affected by forest fires.

This project involves the repopulation of 210 hectares located in the CMVMC of Tenorio, Rebordelo, Borela, and Carballedo in Cerdedo – Cotobade (Pontevedra); and Couso in the Concello de Avión (Ourense), in Galicia.

The repopulation project accelerates the recovery of a burned Atlantic forest, promoting the proliferation of native animal and plant species and establishing a sustainable forest. The future forest mass will help mitigate the effects of climate change by removing CO2 from the atmosphere, a byproduct of human emissions. Moreover, it will play a crucial role in protecting the soil and regulating water resources, minimizing the risk of erosion, adding nutrients, and thereby enhancing soil biodiversity. On the other hand, it will provide localities with numerous ecosystem services, thus supporting rural development, promoting local employment, and outdoor recreational activities.

The project consists of a mixed, multi-species plantation, composed of native coniferous and deciduous species adapted to the local climate, forming a resilient mass against possible environmental disturbances while also enhancing the landscape richness with a combination of deciduous and evergreen species. This mixed composition of native conifers and hardwoods serves to break the horizontal continuity of the mass, playing a key role in preventing the spread of fire.
