A team of ALERT volunteers was, once again, present in a reforestation activity, with native trees, on December 6, 2014, in the scope of the Peneda-Gerês National Park's reforestation.
This activity was part of the 2nd Technical Meetings on Oak Trees that took place at the Vilarinho das Furnas Ethnographic Museum, in Terras de Bouro, on December 5 and 6. One of this event's purposes is the protection and recognition of planting native species, with an emphasis on the importance of oak trees for the local economy and forest preservation.
During the morning, and before the planting activity, acorns were collected, which will germinate and be planted at their location of origin next year.
Similarly to previous years, there was a growing tendency in the number of trees and this year ALERT employees contributed with more than 200 trees for the Peneda-Gerês National Park.
To date, ALERT's volunteers have already contributed with over 500 trees towards the reforestation of the only national park in Portugal.
ALERT is a company that is dedicated to the creation of paperless clinical environments, and which also endeavors to actively contribute towards the preservation of the native forest in Portugal.
