Reforestation projects
in Andalusia

Here you’ll find the projects which you cooperate with when you book a guided visit with Andalucia 360


How does it work?

We cooperate with various and different non-profit associations dedicated to repopulation and reforestateting landscapes of Andalusia’s natural areas.When a traveller books one of our experiences they are contributing with an ecological fee equal to purchasing a one year old plant. This contribution is invested in buying seedings, seeds and working equipment. These associations are responsible for reforesting and pampering our future forests.

Let’s make a greener and more sustainable world!

reforestation in Granada

Trees against the climate Change (ACCC Granada)

ACCC Granada is an association focused towards the reforestation and regeneration of landscapes. It carries out the reforestation of native trees and bushes that capture C02 and serve as a buffer for those released by human beings. Its activity is mainly centered in the capital of Granada and its nearest environment. With an average of twice a week this enthusiastic group of citizens goes to the countryside to water small Holm and Kern Oaks, Strawberry Trees, cornicabras, etc.. But furthermore, Granada’s ACCC also collaborates with school groups encouraging respect towards the environment and maintaining an essential task of awareness.

reforestation in Cerro del Sol Granada

Injecting Life into a burned mountain

The Cerro del Sol or the Dehesa of the Generalife is a mountain that extends itself behind The Alhambra and The Generalife. In Roman times there was an intense mining activity and during the Low Middle Ages this area was partially irrigated. Human activity, and recently a number of fires have devastated what should have been a Mediterranean Forest. Granada ACCC has already carried out various native tree and bush plantings. (Holm Oaks, Mastics, etc…) In this area efforts now are focused on the irrigation and maintenance of the reforestations. Recently they have achieved getting the INFOCA (Andalusian Forest Fire Service) to supply water to the irrigation tanks.

reforestation in Pinos Genil Granada

Recovering Granada’s green area

Pinos Genil is a small village of the outskirts of Granada.The Genil river goes through this place that is located at the feet of Sierra Nevada.Granada’s ACCC has carried out various reforestations. The last one was conducted in October 2019 with the priceless help of a group of school children. Previously the schools’ boys and girls had germinated the Acorns at the garden center. In some years the slopes of Pinos Puente will once again bloom green thanks to the incessant activity of Granada’s ACCC.

reforestation in San Miguel Alto Granada

Recovering the views from The Alhambra

San Miguel Alto is known above all for its amazing views of the city and The Alhambra. However very little care is given to the area that spreads out behind the Chapel that is located on top of the hill. It’s a slope devoid of groves that ends up at the Sacromonte, one of the most touristic areas of Granada. Preventing landscape soil erosion in this location isn’t just crucial for the environment, but also for the inhabitants of the Sacromonte and for the tourism in this part of the city. Granada’s ACCC is betting for the diversity of native species in this unique location.


Almijara Association. Málaga

Almijara is a non-profit organization that provides its service to companies and institutions. Its activity is focused on raising environmental sensitivity and awareness. It carries out reforestation projects in urban, rural and natural surroundings. Since its beginning in 1987 it has been awarded prizes and enjoys a recognized prestige for its undeniable work. It cooperates with Malaga’s Town Hall and the Environment and Ordinance Office of Andalucía’s Regional Government.

Involving Society

Territorial Safe Keeping contributes to entities, institutions and the population taking part in the preservation of the environment. With the “Third Sector and Territory Safekeeping” project, agreements have been signed with several of Malaga’s townships as with El Borge, El Burgo, Monda. Aside from working on public urban perimeter estates. In them Bio and Geo Diverse improvements will be undertaken. As reforestations, havens for butterflies and bees, and flora and wildlife shelters.

Giving nature back its leading Role

The Natural Reserve at the estuary of the Guadalhorce River is a strongly damaged area due to the nearness of human beings. It’s surrounded by and delimited by industrial estates and highways. The making of a scenic screen at the mouth of the river is an ambitious project that pursues planting more than 6.000 trees, and 16.000 native shrubs/bushes. The screen not only favors the landscape, but also lets the fauna develop with more independence from human modified environment.

Torreblanca Verde

Torreblanca Verde is not just another environmental association. In addition to carrying out small, controlled reforestations, one of their main lines of work is the transformation of the Torreblanca de los Caños neighbourhood in Seville. Through the participation of the citizens, especially the youngest, they are achieving a more humane and habitable neighbourhood. We chose to collaborate with Torreblanca Verde because of the great intensity and variability of their environmental and social actions.

Reforesting urban spaces

Greener urban spaces are more habitable. That is why Torreblanca Verde and its legion of volunteers are carrying out a reforestation project next to the old Canal de los Presos on the outskirts of Seville. Their trees are watered every week and in the future they will form a green screen next to the industrial estate. They will also create a lot of shade, which is essential for strolling around Seville in summer. Initially, the watering work was done manually, but now the work has been speeded up thanks to a motor pump with which the water is extracted from the canal.

Refugio de Mariposas en Sevilla

In contact with the animal world

The butterfly refuge is a unique initiative carried out by Torreblanca Verde with the special participation of the youngest children. It involves planting the bushes favoured by these insects to facilitate their proliferation. The space has been decorated with a series of colourful murals that give new life to a space that had been abandoned. The butterfly sanctuary involves creative activity and also involves litter picking days. Undoubtedly the best seed planted is the knowledge of the youngest for the future.

Space for diversity

The nursery project is a knowledge tool, but at the same time it is a space where to germinate and grow seedlings that will later take root somewhere in Torreblanca. The association is in charge of preparing the space and watering and maintaining the plants.
However, the activities of Torreblanca Verde go much further: popular races, botanical walks, nest box groups, book fairs, ecological festivals, etc.

ENEA. Equipo Naturalista y Educación Ambiental

ENEA is a young association created to transmit respect for the environment, using environmental education. It was founded in 2015 by people committed to the environment in Lucena (Córdoba), a small town at the foot of the Sierras Subbéticas natural park. From the interior of Andalusia, they carry out an intense activity that covers very different activities: controlled reforestation, work for the conservation of fauna and waste collection. One of the peculiarities of ENEA is its work to enhance the value of heritage elements related to water supply in rural environments.

Reforestation and waste collection in the wetlands of southern Cordoba

Two or three times a year they organise reforestations to restore the surrounding vegetation, which over time has been cleared for agriculture. The aim is to reduce erosion and increase biodiversity. They also remove the waste they find along the way and take the opportunity to inform and raise awareness of the values of these natural spaces, walking trails and observing the birds found there. Their main areas of work are the nature reserves of the Zóñar, Amarga and Rincón lagoons and the Cordobilla and Malpasillo nature reserves.

Lesser kestrel conservation project in Lucena

Since 2015 they have been developing this project to try to recover the local population of the species. They are carrying out a census and monitoring of the breeding sites. They have installed a hacking system, through which they have released around 60 specimens. They are trying to recover their breeding habitat and are developing an environmental education programme aimed at the school community and the general population.

Research on the sources and springs in the municipality of Lucena

Through this work they are inventorying and documenting the state of conservation of these resources and elements of our heritage. Periodic analyses are carried out to determine their quality for consumption and we measure different parameters to study their evolution over time. We also organise outings to raise awareness of these elements. Water gives life to people and remains as an element of nature, so what better way to protect nature than to take care of water.
