We will realize permanent polycyclic plantations with the focus to produce wood continuously and permanently, without the necessity to eliminate it and replace it at the end of every wood production cicle...
... because directly from the trees, which are almost completely absent in the Valli Grandi Veronesi area, can be created:
• new opportunities for farmers;
• a link to the furniture district, which is right close to the project areas;
• energy for the local people, with a low cost and a low impact on the climate changes.
To better understand how to design the patterns of plant and how in the future we will be able to relate to the potential customers of the arborists will be conducted a study on the market of wood that will be edited by Prof. Mario Pividori, TESAF Department of the University of Padua.
Furthermore to assessing the economic and financial implications of permanent polycyclic plantations and to compare them with the traditional ones, will be involved the ETIFOR, one of the spin-off from the University of Padua. This research will give a value to ecosystem services obtained with permanent polycyclic plantations and will be completed by some feedback on whether to consider the area of the Valli Grandi Veronesi as potential habitat-banking throughout the Veneto.
Articles and reports will be disseminated through the communication tools of which will be equipped with the LIFE + InBioWood. To receive updated information and participate in the discussions of the Forum you have to subscribe to the newsletter of LIFE + InBioWood.
