Forestry Activities

The protected area includes various types of situation, with woods owned by the state, the region and local authorities, woods with collective use rights and private woods. For the Park, the fact that the majority of woods in the Park are included in State Nature Reserves set up in the 1970s and run by the former State Owned Forests Agency (Azienda di Stato delle Foreste Demaniali) according to very conservative criteria is a major strong point.
The overall strategy specified in the Plan for State-owned woodland limits conversion and felling to localised easily accessible areas. As a general rule, the Plan recommends leaving the rest to evolve naturally. In the case of private woods (a minority), the Plan recognises that they represent an important source of supplementary income for local residents in the southern part of the Park and an Improvement Plan is considered essential.
