This session also included a presentation by Cristina Fernández from the Forestry Research Center of Lourizán, who spoke about Innovative management for the valorization and resilience of forest space in the context of the Forvalue Project.

To test the effectiveness of the innovative system proposed in LIFE REFOREST, this solution has been installed in different pilot locations: in the local forests of Nespereira (Pazos de Borbén – Pontevedra), in the mountains of Albergaria (Aveiro – Portugal) and in the mountains of the municipality of Oliveira de Frades (Portugal).

Therefore, in the second part of the day, a visit was made to the experimental plot of Nespereira (Pazos de Borbén).
