Question for written answer E-003729-18
to the Commission
Rule 130
Maria Grapini (S&D)

 Subject:  Paulownia funding project
 Answer in writing 

Irrational deforestation is destroying the habitat of millions of species of flora and fauna.

Afforestation, on the other hand, is a means of combating climate change by attenuating the effects of drought and containing desertification, not to mention helping to keep us healthy and protecting us from natural or manmade hazards.

Will the Commission accordingly channel funding into the cultivation of paulownia trees, which take just five years to reach a sufficient degree of maturity for logging purposes and are then able to regenerate from the remaining root system?
