This action aims to replace empty scocellos and is one of the thirteen actions planned in this project.

Selection of Sites for Tree Plantation

During the meetings, it was explained that the project distinguishes between three types of rocks identified with different colors. Blue ticks indicate the possibility of planting new trees, as long as the technical conditions are met. Purple sedges represent obsolete trees, which will not be given attention as they do not meet the conditions for tree growth. Finally, the sedges marked in red need mechanical intervention to remove old roots or cuttings, and these interventions are not subsidized.
