During the spring of 2014 on 25 parcels of land purchased by Kampinos National Park within the “ActiveKPN” project forestation and reforestation activities were carried out. All together over 30 thousands  of seedlings were planted on an area of 7.3 ha. The work consisted of forestations of open areas, and reforestations of rare species of trees and shrubs on areas already covered by forest. The aim of reforestation is to increase the species diversity of the forest, to create feeding places for birds, and also to support natural succession.

Natural succession is a long-term process which consists of several stages. In our climatic conditions the last stage is usually a well developed forest community. If there is a lack of old seed trees in the surrounding area foresters can plant those species which are not present. This positively influences the species composition of the forest, and quickens natural succession.

Over the years new forestations become forest areas which actively impact the natural conditions. Biodiversity of the forest ecosystems will increase e.g. by planting seedlings of those species which cannot  naturally disperse in such places as under pine cover and in gaps. Forestation and reforestation support the process of regeneration of Kampinos Forest in its old borders, and help the nature of the Park return to its natural state.
