Tomorrow's Forest - one million trees to be planted on forest lands with regeneration difficulties

178 afisari
The Association of Forest Administrators (AFA) and "Ștefan cel Mare" University of Suceava, with the support of Holzindustrie Schweighofer, will help private and community forest owners regenerate degraded forest surfaces all over Romania in the next seven years.

 Tomorrowis Forest replanting project will have a strong positive impact on local communities actively involved in it, by substantially contributing to the conservation of forest resources, to the prevention of erosion, landslides and floods in the respective areas.
Tomorrow's Forest responds to an urgent need for reforestation on private or local administrations’ properties. Forest lands were restituted in several stages and various situations have led to forest degradation in some cases. Subsidies are in place for afforestation of degraded agricultural land but not for replanting on such areas.
AAP will manage the replanting and aftercare works and University of Suceava will support the selection and replanting process on a scientific basis. Holzindustrie Schweighofer will provide project management, funding, volunteers, community outreach, and the educational component of the project and will contribute over 1 million euro for the flawless implementation of the project.
The replanting project is open to any private forest owner and village/city hall. Proposals can be submitted via www.padureademaine.ro, a platform where potential applicants and any stakeholders can find detailed information, the methodology and progress.
Replanting in forests administered by private forest management units takes place on about four thousand hectares each year. We’re launching Tomorrowis Forest to address particular situations encountered in our activity, where forest owners, for various reasons, lack the capacity to regenerate their forests. – Dorel Fechete, Executive Director of AAP
I believe that if we want to change something and it is in our power to do so, not only we should do it, we have to do it. This is what responsibility is about and we have to start somewhere. What better start than planting seedlings, new lives that will shape future forests. It is our duty towards today's forest and tomorrow's generation. – Ciprian Palaghianu, Project Director from the “Ștefan cel Mare” University of Suceava, Forestry Faculty.
We need to replant now so that future generations get the environmental, social and economic benefits from those forests that will take decades to mature. Tomorrow’s Forest will cover all Romanian regions and planting will be done in order to restore natural forest vegetation in the selected areas. – said Ionuț Apostol, project manager.
We are committed to sustainable forestry in Romania and therefore actively support Tomorrowis Forest, as a project that will help degraded land become forests again – says Dan Bănacu, General Manager, Holzindustrie Schweighofer Romania.
Replanting will take place in spring and/or autumn each year depending on locations, species and weather conditions while aftercare operations will continue for several years in all selected locations.
