Forests are the lungs of the world, and indigenous forests, with the site’s original species composition, are the best for helping mitigate effects of global warming. In addition, they are home to a huge biodiversity of plants and animals.
There are also nature-based solutions for restoring forests, for which we are specialists.
We have been transforming a eucalyptus stand into an oak grove more than 25 years ago, and we have monitored the process over the years. Biodiversity has increased from around 30 species of vascular plants present in 1996 to over 320 in the year 2021! In addition to the cork oaks, several species of oaks installed themselves naturally, which together form a beautiful pre-wood. And all this without planting a single plant or species.
