Native Forest Day. Quercus and LandraTech present 5 measures to valorise the acorn sector
Autochthonous Forest Day is celebrated today, 23 November. To mark the date, Quercus - the National Association for Nature Conservation - and LandraTech - a company that values the use of acorns throughout the Iberian Peninsula and has a processing centre in Barcelos - are highlighting the importance of acorns for human consumption, for the conservation and regeneration of plants of the genus Quercus (which includes holm oaks, cork oaks and various species of oak) and native forests, which are dominated by this genus.
