The forest code (Art L. 341-1 and following) provide for strict regulations on clearing compensation, both in terms of project definition and the schedule to be respected
If the company wishes to pay the amount, fixed by the decree authorizing land clearing, directly to the strategic forest and timber fund, it is exposed to the higher maximum amount, without really participating to the preservation of forests in France.
The organization which takes the decision to clear the land without reforesting, exposes its notoriety and its reputation to criticism from many detractors.
Analysis of compensation obligations based on projects identified by the company, upstream or after obtaining the decree authorizing land clearing
Establishment of the compensatory afforestation agreement between the forester and the company or its affiliates, for each of the projects identified
Identification and selection of afforestation or reforestation compensatory projects corresponding to the requirements of the clearing authorization order.
Contact and discussions with the administration to propose the selected projects for validation
Coordination and monitoring of the realization of silvicultural works, control the correct realization for each project (Project management being provided by the Forestry Manager or Forestry Expert)
