At project nursery has started the seeding of containers with oak acorns to produce seedlings in 2020. Over the last week were seeded more than 11 000 oak acorns and the nursery plan for 2020 foresees the production of over 800 000 seedlings of 17 tree and brush bushes of local genetic origin.
Produced seedlings will be used for the restoration of priority habitats within 6 Natura 2000 sites damaged by nature hazards on SWSFE territory through reforestation.
In parallel we continue the sorting and transportation of the produced in 2019 over 300 000 containerised seedlings which are currently used fore reforestation. By year end a total of 65 ha of new forest will be created under the project within target SCIs which is more than 50% of the project targeted areas for priority habitat restoration.
