Afforestation of Degraded Grasslands

Uruguay

Carbon Removal

Afforestation, Reforestation and Nature preservation

The project covers various forest sites in Uruguay that were used for cattle grazing and caused soil erosion and degradation beyond natural regeneration. The area is reforested with eucalyptus and pine trees to establish a commercial but sustainable and monitored production of wood pulp and sawdust.

Afforestation of Degraded Grasslands

Uruguay needs to conserve the country's forests to reach its climate targets and to conserve precious wildlife habitats. Meanwhile, it also has to consider the demand for vital timber. This project helps the country to meet this challenge.

The project in eastern Uruguay covers over 18k hectares of forest sites previously used for beef cattle grazing that caused soil erosion and land degradation beyond the point of natural regeneration. The project replants the area with native trees such as eucalyptus and pine and supports their growth. The grown trees commercially but at the same time sustainably produce wood pulp and sawdust. Establishing a continuous forest inventory will enable the monitoring of forest development, tree growth, forest health, and fire risks to promote sustainable wood production, land restoration, and carbon sequestration through afforestation.
