Resilient landscape in Ports Nature Park

In Els Ports Nature Park, the abandonment of most of the productive activities has led to the stagnation of the stands of endemic Pinus nigra, P. halepensis and Quercus ilex, giving rise to very young and homogeneous stands, with a high fire risk.

Following the Standard for adaptation measures, the proposal is to create a landscape resilient to climate change effects, consisting of patches of different vegetation and forests at different stages of development. By restoring basic ecological processes (through conservation forestry, prescribed fire, herbivore management) a heterogeneous mosaic, interstepped with mature forests and open structures and resilient to drought and fire is created.
