“Dehesa Común de Solanillos” (Guadalajara) is a hilly area of public use which is part of Los Pinares del Ducado de Medinaceli, a wood of maritime pine in which a few other species, including various types of oak, also feature.
Thirteen thousand hectares of forest were completely destroyed by a fire in the summer of 2005; all 11 members of a team of firefighters also lost their lives. Following this, the Sponsor a Tree Foundation project was created (www.apadrinaunarbol.org
), based on the environmental recovery of the area, ??on education in values and on the development of a region greatly affected by depopulation.
Repsol and Fundación Repsol have collaborated every year since 2010 on the reforestation of the Solanillos woodlands.
