A reforestation action will take place in Manteigas, a region in Serra
da Estrela (Portugal), on the 12th of January.
The action results from a program to reduce and offset the carbon
emissions caused by the “IX International Conference on Forest Fire
Research” occurred in Coimbra.
The compensation is reflected in the
plantation of trees in the area burnt in the large fire event that
occurred in 2022 in the protected area of Serra da Estrela.
The reforestation measurements were made considering the outputs
provided by the Decision Support System developed in Resilient Forests –
C.A.F.E – that used the meteorological data provided by the Portuguese
Institute of the Sea and Atmosphere (IPMA) for Serra da Estrela region.
