Did you know that?

Wetlands include ponds, marshes and peat bogs that form a special ecosystem and are home to 40% of the planet's animals and plants . Unfortunately, many wetlands have been drained in response to growing urbanisation or to make way for conventional farming. We want to change that and need your support to restore these wetlands and the important role they play in providing biodiversity and healthy forest ecosystems.

Inventory

In April 2021, EcoTree took over the management of 35 hectares of wetland near some important ecological areas. Though the area was originally wetlands, it has been used for conventional agriculture since the 1950s. The waterways and ecosystem have been changed and partially dried up, which has led to flooding in towns downstream.
This wetland is located on either side of the Forest de la Trinité , owned by EcoTree. Partly labelled Natura 2000, it contributes to forest biodiversity but its potential remains limited. Our lead forester and team of ecologists aim to restore the area to its original state, which will encourage natural species to return and improve water quality. We will install suitable drainage, rebalance soil PH and restore the watercourse's meanders.

Our actions

Set up an eco-pasture

Sheep and cattle graze, which helps combat natural afforestation, keep the site open and rebalance the soil's PH.

EcoTree

Complete an inventory

We create precise cartography of current habitats and species to preserve or restore then complete an inventory of fauna and flora.

EcoTree

Submit application

We submit the relevant documents as required by law and gain approval from Natura 2000 technicians before work begins.

Restore the site

We re-meander and refill watercourses to restore them to their original state. We also create ponds, plant diverse honey-producing hedges and mow moors and meadows.

Post-work follow-up

Fpr three year's following the inital work, we monitor the site's habitats and biodiversity. We also maintain and track biodiversity indicators to check on progress.
