How to realise this?
In 2022 we will plant 43,800 trees on 100 hectares of bare terrain. In total, this will comprise fifteen different species of trees and shrubs that are endemic, such as holm oak, juniper and mulberry.
The soil in the area is stony and hard. It will have to be ploughed first, in order to give the young trees a better chance of survival. Each planting hole will be enriched with hydrogel so as to help the young trees to hold moisture. Besides, wide fire lanes will be laid out in order to protect the plantings from wildfire.
Return of a unique animal species
Furthermore, fifteen ponds will be dug. These will provide the trees with water in times of drought, but will also attract animals and plants. The rare Andalusian midwife toad, for instance, will find more habitat to procreate in.
Especially for the Iberian lynx we will create rabbit hills. This will cause an increase of the rabbit population, the prey for this endangered feline. The golden eagle and Bonelli’s eagle will also benefit.
