Recognition of the plantation area in El Bruc, Catalonia

On the 20th of July, the teams of CREAF and Volterra had a meeting in the planting area in El Bruc to design, plan and prepare the plantation work. The area surrounding the Mountain of Montserrat frequently suffers from forest fires, with last year´s fire hazard as latest example. With the planting of broadleaf trees, mainly Olives and Oak species, the project seeks to converse the pine forest into a mixed forest that is more resilient to forest fires.

The planting areas in El Bruc are located on private terrain.     Thousands of trees (mainly pine species) burned during the land fires of last year. With the planting of broadleaf species, we intend to make the forest more resilient to forest fires.
