Borșa 2 planting

In 2012, an entire mountain slope (49 hectares) was affected by fire, and the area was returned to Borsa City Hall in 2015, which lacked the financial resources for the necessary works. The area is in the Maramureş Mountains Natural Park, and in the valley, there is a tailings pond from a former mining operation (which makes it quite important to stabilise the slope). In 2018 we planted 10 hectares here. Our plantation (and other pieces of land) was soon destroyed by a fire that started close by. In 2019 the plantation was redone. In 2020, the owner can cover 50% of the reforestation works.
