Reforestation event at Parco Spina Verde: plant a tree in Como’s green lung

Take part in the event organised by WOWnature on 18 November in Como, to breathe new life into Spina Verde Park, the city's lung. We have a very ambitious goal: to plant 11,600 new trees. Thanks to the support of so many nature lovers, we have already reached 40% of adoptions. What are you waiting for to choose your tree? You can plant it with your hands together with your friends and family. An indelible experience to live on the shores of Lake Como.

Adopt a tree in Parco Spina Verde

Our forestry experts have selected 13 species of trees and shrubs that you can adopt or give away: Hazel, chestnut, elder, lime… choose your favourite and come and plant it in person at our event on 18 November at 10am.

Take part to the event

  • Adopt or donate a tree: choose from the 13 different tree species available.
  • Invitation to the planting event: after adopting a tree, you will receive an email invitation to the event where you can plant your tree in person. Share this experience with friends and family to make the day even more special.

Parco Spina Verde 


The Spina Verde Park is an exceptional ecological corridor stretching from east to west, in contrast to many other north-south oriented protected areas in Lombardy. This geographical uniqueness makes it a home for a vast biodiversity, including numerous animals and plants. It is recognised as a Special Area of Conservation (SAC) for monitoring numerous animal species. In addition, the park has a ‘cultural’ side with important historical remains, such as Castel Baradello. The spectacular views of Lake Como and the Swiss mountains capture the hearts of visitors, making the Spina Verde Park an ideal place for lovers of nature, history and scenic beauty.



Goals of the reforestation project


Preserving biodiversity, supporting the management of the forest and improving its accessibility to people are our goals. The interventions include actions to clean the forest from dry vegetation and plant native trees to counter the spread of exotic and pest species. In addition, we will restore existing wetlands and create a pond to preserve and enhance essential habitats for the amphibians that populate the Spina Verde Park. 


All in all, we will regenerate no less than 36 hectares of forest in need of new trees. In addition, we have great news. We will open a small nursery for the self-production of native plants (trees, shrubs and grasses) to be used in the ecological redevelopments carried out by the Park. In doing so, Spina Verde will play an essential role in providing services that we often take for granted: carbon capture, groundwater recharge, pollutant retention, soil conservation, and the maintenance of a healthy environment for recreation and well-being.


This project is co-financed by the Lombardy Region’s “Biodiversity and Climate” (BioClima) call for proposals and supported by Fondazione Cariplo. Bioclima is an initiative created in the framework of the Lombardy Plan and the LIFE GESTIRE 2020 project that aims to create public-private financing models to catalyse investments in biodiversity conservation and climate change adaptation projects in Lombardy’s forests and protected areas.
