PROJECT

Villanueva de Abajo A

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Creation of a forest ecosystem capable of absorbing CO from the atmosphere, mitigating the effects of climate change, and providing a habitat for biodiversity.

This forest repopulation project of 6.07 hectares is located in the municipality of Congosto de Valdavia, province of Palencia (Castilla y León).

The aim of this project is to achieve the ecological restoration of the area, helping to mitigate the effects of climate change by capturing CO2 and storing carbon. The new forest mass will play a fundamental role in soil protection and water resource regulation, minimizing erosion and providing nutrients to the soil. Additionally, it will provide shelter, nesting sites, and food for wildlife. Furthermore, it will offer social benefits by contributing added value to the municipality, such as rural development, local employment, and outdoor recreational activities, among others.

This mass consists of a mix of native deciduous trees, whose diversity and resilience will provide greater security against extreme natural phenomena and environmental changes.
