The conservation of native forests contributes to the balance of the environment and helps in the biological control of pests and diseases.
BIOLOGICAL CONTROL: for more than 20 years we have been combating wood wasps (Sirex noctilio) through biological control. We monitor the presence of attacks and the rate of parasitism, preventing possible damages, besides maintaining sanity of the plantations.
FIRE PROTECTION: We develop preventive and conscientious actions in the community around the forest areas and we have teams and covenants responsible for the actions of combat in eventual fire outbreaks.
PATRIMONIAL SURVEILLANCE: the guardians who live on the farms and monitor the patrimonial assets, control predatory actions to the fauna and flora and control the access of visitors. We also have a partnership with the Environmental Military Police of Santa Catarina, with the purpose of cooperating in environmental inspection and education in the areas covered by the Company. Another measure of control and monitoring is the procedure for fishing in the reservoirs and rivers that cut the properties of Irani, through which fishing is authorized by means of request and registration of the visitors.
IMPROVEMENTS AND INNOVATION: We have established partnerships with research institutions for the development of joint activities in the areas of Improvement, Protection and Forest Management, Biodiversity Conservation, Soils, among others. We develop and support research with the potential to generate more knowledge of the interaction between local flora and fauna and planted forests, aiming at improving management methods and enabling the definition of environmental management indicators.
