The ancient lowland wood of Carlino (UD, Italy) is once again accessible thanks to citizens, organizations and companies such as Miko which have supported the protection activities of planting new trees through the wownature.eu platform.
As a result of the collaboration between Miko with the Natura7, achieved thanks to the wownature.eu platform, which allows citizens and businesses to protect existing forests and plant new trees, Bosco Sacile located in Carlino (UD, Italy) is reborn to new life and becomes accessible to the public again. The new look of the ancient forest will be celebrated on Saturday 22 May 2021 at 9 am with an event open to the public, during which the adopted species will be planted.
Bosco Sacile is an ancient plain forest of 70 hectares, the size of 116 football fields, very important for the territory that hosts it, also recognized at European level and cataloged as a Special Protection Area and Area Natura 2000. In the past the area was damaged and the Natura7 Agricultural Company bought it from the old owners to restore it to its original naturalness level. This path was possible thanks to the participation of Etifor, a spin-off of the University of Padua and creator of the wownature.eu, and the involvement of Miko, the Gorizia-based company producing Dinamica®, which has supported important interventions and protection activities for the planting of new trees. From the outset, the project envisaged the restoration of the health of the forest, as well as the reactivation of recreational and educational functions, and the reopening of the area to the public. Moreover, as a guarantee of the quality of management, the forest has obtained FSC® certification (Forest Stewardship Council®, the most rigorous and recognized independent and third-party standard of sustainable forest management in the world).
"We immediately understood the need to enhance the green areas that surround us and we chose to support the 'Bosco Sacile' project and undertake a path of sustainability with the aim of becoming a Climate Positive reality by 2030, capturing more CO2 than that issued during our business activities. " - observed Benedetta Terraneo, business manager of Miko - "For years we have been close to issues related to the environment and sustainability in our daily business life. We live in times when we have a responsibility to set ourselves sustainable goals because the growth of a company also passes through the growth of our planet ".
