Preserve or, where possible, replenish the forest network on the Italian territory with the “aim of contrasting the causes and effects of climate change through forestry activities”.
Woods and forests are the “keepers” of the planet. They provide oxygen, food, water, counteract the advance of the desert, are the antidote to soil erosion. They capture and retain pollutants: trees alone have the potential to absorb about a tenth of global carbon emissions. In the trunk, in the roots, in the soil. They store it, acting as a natural deposit. A hectare of forest can sequester up to 5 tons of CO2 per year.
Even in the absence of rain, Nature gives hope by showing its regenerative capacity.
What is agroforestry? For agroforestry we mean an agricultural management system where trees and shrubs, that is woody and long-lived plants, are grown in combination with herbaceous crops and / or pastures.
