Reforestation event at Valle del Ticino Park
Why reforest the Parco Lombardo del Ticino?
The Parco Lombardo Valle del Ticino is a gem of biodiversity located in the heart of the Po Valley, a precious and delicate area that requires our attention and care. It constitutes the most important ecological corridor connecting the Alps and the Apennines.
With an area of 91,800 hectares, this treasure chest of nature has been recognised by UNESCO as a MAB Biosphere Reserve, underlining its exceptional value for biodiversity conservation and sustainable development.
The forests of the Ticino Park constitute the last and most important forest area in the Po Valley, covering an area of approximately 20,000 hectares. However, this natural heritage is threatened by the presence of invasive exotic plants, the result of socio-economic changes that have altered the natural balance.
