RISK PREVENTION AND RESTORATION OF DEGRADED NATURAL RISK AREAS
Nature is resilient to damage caused by man (earthworks, fires, pollution) but it takes several centuries during which torrential rains wash away the soil and fires, which are more frequent, consume what remains. The bare, almost sterile
soil favours the development of undesirable pioneer plant species (ragweed) or invasive species (Japanese knotweed). In order to prevent or restore these ecosystems, Agrosylva offers to :
■ Controlling the outbreak of forest fires :
Rather than using expensive mechanical means (forest shredder, brushcutter) which encourage the development of easily inflammable brush, Agrosylva proposes the spreading of sludge in
“fire-break” zones to slow down the transmission of forest fires within the framework of silvopastoralism maintenance.
■ Watercourse maintenance :
Agrosylva intervenes in the framework of operations for the creation of growth expansion zones and the reduction of water run-off. Moreover, Agrosylva can bring its advice in order to reduce the impact of climate change on your territory.
■ Restoration of degraded areas :
In prevention, Agrosylva proposes to restore the conditions of rapid return of the native ecosystem, by using stable organic matter on the areas to be treated and by seeding a floral procession adapted to the local context.
