Silves council reforestation

A project to plant trees on the site of the former municipal dump in Silves has begun, with the municipal Câmara working together with private companies Timberland Europe and Oryzon Energias.

More than 160 workers will be provided by Timberland Europe to work on the area, which will see the planting of 3,720 pines trees and 1,250 cork trees.

The object of the project is to reduce the environmental impact of the municipal dump in the Herdade de São Bom Homen.
