Boticas received 2360 trees

Following the different applications presented by the Municipal Council of Boticas to the Common Forest Program, the Council received 2360 trees to reforest the parishes of Alturas Barroso and Cerdedo, Ardãos and Bobadela, Boticas and Granja, Codessoso, Curros and Fiães do Tâmega, Covas do Barroso, Dornelas, Pinho, Sapiãos and Vilar and Viveiro.

The species, 160 birches, 1000 white oaks  and 1200 meandering pines come from the Amarante forest nursery of the Institute of Nature Conservation and Forests (portuguese ICNF).

The “Common Forest” program is an initiative promoted by QUERCUS, ICNF, the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Rural Development, the National Association of Portuguese Municipalities (portuguese ANMP) and the University of Trás-os-Montes and Alto Douro (portuguese UTAD). The program’s mission is to promote the production, collection and distribution of native trees to projects that demonstrate motivation, demonstrate skills and have the necessary resources to plant and care for forests.
