LIFE - Danube Island Forest
(Conservation of alluvial habitats of community interest on the Szabadság Island and side channel in Béda-Karapancsa pSCI)
The DANUBEISLANDFOREST project’s main objective was to demonstrate a long-term, sustainable conservation model for white willow (Salicion albae) alluvial forests in Hungary. A core aim is to eliminate or mitigate the factors that
threaten the habitats of Community interest. To achieve these goals, the project consortium intended to clear the project area of invasive species and non-native ee plantations and restore the appropriate water flow in the side-arm to
improve water availability for white willow forests during low water periods and to facilitate an undisturbed ecosystem, where natural processes are predominant.
