Life Nieblas team gather in Portugal !
This week, Gesplan and CREAF have joined forces with Viseu Dão Lafões Intermunicipal Community, to carry out plant monitoring in Portugal!
Three tree species have been planted on the 10-hectare area in Vouzela and Carregal do Sal - Sobreiro (Quercus suber), Carvalho alvarinho (Quercus robur), and Carvalho negral (Quercus pyrenaica). Traditional, cocoon, and IFWC reforestation methods are being tested, and the data collected will allow for an analysis of their effectiveness through monitoring the survival, state, and growth of the plants.
This international collaboration exemplifies the team's determination and efforts to restore the forests to their original state and encourage natural water infiltration into the subsoil.
