Two tanks for the irrigation of a forest nursery, Poland

Project info

In Dębno, Poland, two tanks were installed for a forest nursery. This forest nursery is a managed area, designated to produce tree seedlings grown under favourable conditions until they are ready for planting. In the Dębno forest nursery small oak, pine and spruce trees are grown that are later planted in the forest.

Water intake occurs through the bottom outlet. A set of three Grundofs vertical pumps fill the 310 m3 water tanks automatically with water from a deep well. Irrigation of the nursery takes place by sprinklers during the period from April to September. In May, the stored water is also used for misting, as protection against frost.

Tree seedling production has become a fundamental tool for addressing reforestation, restoration and conservation needs.
