Monchique reforestation

Water company Águas de Monchique carried out a reforestation initiative in December which resulted in the planting of around 80 trees, mostly oak trees.

The initiative involved 38 of the company’s employees, who made their way from Caldas de Monchique up to Picota, one of the most affected areas in last summer’s wildfire.

The company’s CEO Vítor Hugo Gonçalves vowed to look after the planted trees for the next three years.
