Planting native species and creating fire prevention zones

In southern France, we are planting fire resistant native species around fire stations to shield them from future fires and raise awareness among local communities about wildfires and their causes. We are also working with young people to take care of the trees. In short, our aim is to promote sustainable forest management practices for future generations.
