Erica ciliaris en LIC Doñana Norte y Oeste

The project has completed the clearing of the pine forest adjacent to the path of Ribetehilos in Doñana Natural Park (Almonte, Huelva) with the objective of conserving habitats of community interest, such as the Atlantic heathland of Erica ciliaris and the seasonal Mediterranean lagoons. The felling and deforestation work was carried out between December 2015 and February 2016 to minimise the effects on wild fauna and flora. The action was restricted to the closest strip to the heathland (40 metres) and covered 32.35 hectares that, likewise, involved the removal of 112.787 million cubic metres, which will be allocated to the use of biomass.
