The reforestation work of Thanry Group

Through its reforestation activities, the Thanry Group has already reforested  12,107 ha, or 3,184,141 trees since 2004 and is committed to planting 459 ha, or 95,472 trees, for the 2023 campaign.

In terms of reforestation, the group carries out two types of work each year: compensatory reforestation and reforestation for the management of classified forests. Reforestation for the management of classified forests under management is intended to recover degraded areas. To achieve its objectives, the Thanry Group has set up community tree nurseries that produce each year about 150,000 plants of about twenty local species. Finally, the work is carried out by local populations. The Thanry Group replants an average of 208 trees per hectare, which is the optimal density for reforestation, with an average success rate of about 93%.

The monitoring of reforestation operations is controlled by SODEFOR and the Directorate General of Water and Forests. The latter are responsible for sending a monitoring report of the activities to the Directorate of Reforestation and Forest Cadastre (DRCF) concerning the reforestation in progress and the maintenance of the plots carried out over the last two years. 

Below you will find summary tables of the number of hectares and trees planted as part of the management of classified forests and compensatory reforestation from 2004 to the present.

Overview of reforestation work :

Reforestation to the service of the general interest

From a social point of view, compensatory reforestation is a vector for improving the living conditions of local populations. These are the progress of access to drinking water, the regulation of the local climate, soil conservation, the creation of jobs and income… Employing local populations and training them is a factor in the socio-economic point of view.

From an environmental point of view,  compensatory reforestation and management make it possible to regenerate biomass degraded by bushfires, agriculture, urbanization or logging. Reforestation helps local flora and fauna to recover. Increased forest cover absorbs additional amounts of green emission gasses.
