LIFE+ InBioWood - Increase Biodiversity through Wood Production (LIFE12 ENV / IT / 000153) is a project started in 2013 and is currently in the final phase, the objective it was that implement and promote Potentially Permanent Polycyclic Tree farm. It is a type of plantation that combines environmental benefits similar to those of a forest with the productive advantages of artificial plantations. In order to promote the diffusion of these plantation, demonstration areas and various types of informative materials have been created by the project partners, such as a technical manual and videos, all available free of charge at

In particular we point out some articles of a popular nature, recently made available in English, that deal with the following topics:
