First planting in Gran Canaria

The plantation of the degraded slopes was executed by the partners Cabildo of Gran Canaria and LLC.

This week, the teams of Cabildo de Gran Canaria together with the technical support of Land Life Company, have planted a large number of local, endemic species, to restore the island´s degraded slopes. Because of the high herbivore pressure and water scarcity on the island, it was decided to protect each Cocoon with a frame of iron wire.

As you can see on the pictures, the rocky, mountainous terrain makes the area both a beautiful as a challenging place to plant trees.
