Scope and target sites

The project scope covers the territory of the Regional Forest Directorate – Sofia and Forest Seed Control Station – Sofia. After the project end we will seek for opportunities for multiplication of project results on national level.

The project foresees the pilot restoration of damaged forest habitats in 2 NATURA 2000 sites – Dragoman (BG0000322) and Plana (BG0001307). Direct conservation activities will be implemented for 2 priority habitats:

  • 91H0* Pannonian woods with Quercus pubescens;
  • 91E0* Alluvial forests with Alnus glutinosa and Fraxinus excelsior.

In addition the project will indirectly benefit the following priority forest habitats:

  • Tilio-Acerion forests of slopes, screes and ravines;
  • Pannonic woods with Quercus petraea and Carpinus betulus;
  • Euro-Siberian steppic woods with Quercus spp;
  • (Sub-)Mediterranean pine forests with endemic black pines
  • and Endemic forests with Juniperus spp.

The timeframe for project implementation covers 46 months as of the project start in September 2011.
