The forests we created and improved

Bosco Portegrandi

Quarto d'Altino (VE)

The Portegrandi Forest, located near Venice and the Sile River, is a project that transforms an uncultivated area into a forest rich in biodiversity. With about 800 native plants planted imitating the natural conformation of a forest, it will be a vital refuge for wildlife and pollinating insects.





Portegrandi Forest is a new green initiative in the heart of the Po Valley, just 20 km from Venice. This new forest will grow in a now unused area to create a rich and diverse forest ecosystem, following in the footsteps of the ancient oak-harvest forests typical of these areas. Portegrandi will bring a piece of nature back to an intensely agricultural location, becoming a key building block for biodiversity, providing refuge for a wide range of animal species, from pollinators to birds, mammals to insects.


With a unique design and spontaneous distribution of various species, the project aims to recreate the complexity and diversity of a natural forest. The bands of shrubs along the edges play a key role, acting as transition zones between the forest and the surrounding agricultural context. Portegrandi Forest s just one green oasis designed to maximize ecosystem services and contributing to the fight against climate change. This project is made possible through the support of the European Union, the City of Quarto d’Altino, and is part of the larger Life ClimatePositive Project, highlighting the shared commitment to a greener and more sustainable future.
