Restauration work in Junglinster, Bous and Schengen

In the context of the Life Orchis project restauration work is done in the communes of Junglinster, Bous and Schengen. These works include scrub clearing, as well as the removal of inappropriate forest-tree species. The scrub clearing contains cutting back of vegetation and the reduction of scrub cover.

These actions allow a better insolation of the surfaces as well as the reduction of concurrence for the sensitiv species of dry grassland.
