The implemantation works within the frames of the KEOP-3.1.2/2F/09-11-2013-0026 have started at the beginning of August 2014 through the intervention of the contractor, who won the public procurement.

The project has been materialized on the score of European Union funding, which supported the reconstruction of the habitat of the NATURA 2000 areas.
The intensity of the support was 100% in connection with the executive stage of the project, and the amount of the obtained sponsorship was 148.716.480.- hungarian forints.
The forestry has launched the project in consortium with the War Department.

The cutting activity consists of the mechanical cutting of the invasive tree species and the chemical treatment with non-drip technology of the stools, as well as the new-growing sprouts beside increased lookout,

 

The usage of the chemical was needed, as the efficiency of the intervention can not be guaranteed in the long run.
The area affected by the cutting of the invasive species extends on 333,12 hectares.

The transformation of the structure of the wood has taken place on 10,77 hectares, where oak (Quercus cerris) substance was put instead of pine (Pinus sylvestris) substance.

After the execution of the works, the condition of the natural areas of the region are going to improve, the proportion of the territories connected to the habitats with public significance will be increased and at the same time, there will rise an opportunity to sustain an ecological balance as well as the biological diversity on the long run.
The project ended on 15th Juny 2015.
The sustainable period lasts for 5 years and during this time, KASZÓ will handle the cutting of the accidentally appearing invasive tree species under its own power.

Permetezés    

The first stage of the public procurement procedure was announced in order to look for a contractor implementing the dredging of mud in Lake Kűvölgy and the road works.

On 26th May 2015 we received the environmental permission which was issued through the environmental impact assessment of the planned habitat reconstruction in the area of Kaszópuszta.

On occasion of the Day of Birds and Trees on 10th May Ökocentrum organised different afternoon programmes and activities for those that were interested. The event started with a presentation on birds given by Róbert Lukács, nature conservation engineer student of the University of Kaposvár. Following that, we walked through the Kaszó Öregerdő Educational Trail with the visitors, where they were told interesting facts about trees, forest wildlife and the importance of forest management.

     

In frame of the LIFE project ’Falco vespertinus in the Pannonian Region’ the cattle was driven out on Saint George’s day. Both KASZÓ Zrt. and NAIK-ERTI were represented at the event, where the project was introduced. We also watched as the Hungarian Grey Cattle was driven out to the pasture and participated in the presentation of an educational trail.
