The Community develops works of fire prevention with exploitation of biomass on 391 hectares of Mula (09/02/2018)

The Ministry of Tourism, Culture and the Environment is developing works to prevent fires and use biomass in 391 hectares of the municipality of Mula.

These actions, framed in the Forest Plan of the Region of Murcia, are added to two others in public forests of Caravaca de la Cruz and Cehegín that represent a total investment of more than 1.4 million euros and act on 765 hectares.

The General Director of Medio Medio, Consuelo Rosauro, visited today the works that are being developed in Mula and that focus on the Umbria public mountains of Sierra Espuña and Sierra de Pedro Ponce, where 7,463 tons of biomass will be extracted, improving the health of these wooded areas and reducing the risks and impacts of possible fires.

"These forestry management tasks that we carry out in Mula reduce the vegetation density to favor the general growth of forest stands, while at the same time reducing the risk of fire, improving the health of the forests, as well as generating a productive activity and generating employment, "said Rosauro.

Specifically, the investment in the municipality of Mula amounts to 687,660 euros, of which 463,457 euros is financed by the regional government and the rest is generated from the sale of the biomass extracted in the improvement work of these public forests.

Likewise, these two actions, which are financed by the European Union's Feder Funds, also mean the improvement of almost 25 kilometers of roads.

Improvement of the environment

The works of prevention of fires with use of the biomass include the improvement of the wild flora and the fauna, the protection against erosive risks, the prevention against the forest fires, the restoration and silvicultural and ecological improvement of the forest cover, the selective treatments and biological fight against harmful agents, the promotion of social and landscape use and forest productivity.

The action consists in the elimination of the surplus, weakened, dominated or defective feet of trees, which translates into a decrease in the competition of the specimens by water, nutrients and energy, improving in this way the general vegetative state of the forest masses, favoring their further development and reducing the structural risk of forest fires.

In addition, the modification of the structure and composition of the vegetation around the forest tracks has the dual purpose of hindering the spread of fire in case of fire and serve as a strategic point to facilitate the tasks of extinction.
