Forest procedures in fire degraded areas of the forest

 
     

1. Information about the EEA Financial Mechanism 2004-2009

The project “Forest Procedures in Fire Degraded Areas of the forest (ES-0024)” is supported by a grant from Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway through the EEA Financial Mechanism 2004-2009, signed between Spain (the Beneficiary State) through the Directorate General for Community Funds of the Ministry of Economy and the Inland Revenue, and the Project Promoter (Environmental Directorate-General of the Ministry of Industry, Energy and Environment).
The total cost of the Project  are 4.563.332 euros, being the grant rate 43,82%.

The ambition of the EEA Grants is to contribute to a more equal Europe. The three donor states, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway will make available €672 million of project funding over five years to reduce social and economic disparities in Europe. Beneficiaries are organisations, NGOs, municipalities and businesses across Central and Southern Europe. Norway contributes with around 97% of the funding.

2. Project Description:

The overall aims of this project are the hydrological and forestry restoration of 1385 ha. of an area burned by a wildfire happened in the municipality terms of Pinofranqueado, Nuñormoral, Caminomorisco, and Casares de las Hurdes in 2003, the improvement and conservation of roads, the construction of forest fires infrastructure for forest fires prevention and suppression, and the creation of recreational areas.

The plant cover regeneration process consists in the site preparation (pre planting silvicultural practices), plantation with pines and oaks species, and pos reforestation practices (bush clearing around the seedling, dead plants replacement, and grass vegetation tillage), in order to accelerate the recovery of the burned area and the regeneration of species-rich forest ecosystem.
In this manner, deriving goals from the forest restoration and the future canopy cover creation are:   
 
  • Gully and rills erosion control.
  • Water infiltration improvement.
  • Direct runoff decrease.
  • Biodiversity increase by means of mixed stand establishment.
  • Reforestation monitoring.
  • Non-crop vegetation tillage through the bush clearing around the seedlings, to facilitate the water and nutrients availability of the planted seedling.

On the other hand some auxiliary technical infrastructure works accompanies this restoration, allowing the proper management and defence of the woodlands and forest areas:
  • The construction of 30 units of water ponds in order to improve the fire-fighting water availability for the wildland fire trucks and fire helicopters.
  • Maintenance of 1566 meters of forest roads, so that the wildland firefighters can suppress the forest fires with more effectiveness, celerity, security, and besides the forest roads improvements will permit the access of the wildland fire trucks to the burning areas.
  • 6 new firebreaks construction (28 ha.) with the purpose of wildfire prevention, that makes it possible the diminution of fuel loading to obtain a reduction in the energetic intensity of potential fires, allows fire suppression resources to be moved in a safe and efficient manner, and firefighters are able to suppress the wildfires with a position of safety.
  • Creation of 75 drainage structures, that are necessary for the forest roads maintenance.
  • Establishment of 5 recreational areas, to encourage the social use of woodlands and the environmental education.
