FOREST PRACTICES AND USES
At GEA Forestal we carry out all kinds of forestry work and other forestry-related activities.
Spain has the second largest forest surface-area in Europe, half of which is comprised of wooded areas and half of which is forest zones without trees.
As such, managing natural resources responsibly and maintaining forest infrastructure is vitally important to secure sources of income for both public and private properties and to guarantee the forests’ survival.
The creation or improvement of roads, trails, firebreak, water points, etc. These are necessary projects to make our forests more accessible, prevent forest fires, and improve forestry practices such as hunting.
Silviculture treatments (clearing land, pruning, weeding, trimming, etc) allow forests to maintain an optimum state in terms of productivity and conservation.
We have engineers available to forest owners who are experts in the design and execution of these infrastructures and treatments, and who can complete any government-required reports or projects.
NON-WOOD BASED FORESTRY PRACTICES
GEA Forestal recommends carrying out non-wood-based forestry ventures, such as resin extractions, planting mycorrhized holm oak trees to exploit truffles or hunting operations.
SOME OF OUR WORK
In the municipality of Ablanque, we cleared heliophilous brush (Cistus laurifolius) and pine trees (until we reached a median density of 1,500 – 2,000 ft/ha), trimmed, pruned pine trees, and eliminated low branches and waste.
Construction of a firebreak 2 km in length and 20 m in width along the border between the Canredondo and Val de San García municipalities.
Restoration of the forest trail that connects the CM-2021 highway with the Monteagudo river through the Escomiadero ravine in the municipality of Canredondo (Guadalajara).
