The Mountain Union of Municipalities of Mugello (U.C. Mugello) is in charge of managing public forest and agricultural land of the Tuscany Region within the territory assigned by law; a total area of ​​7,438.77 hectares formed by 4 forests; the Giogo-Casaglia (ha 6,161.59), La Calvana (ha 489.38), Alto Senio (ha 417.47), and  Alpe1 (ha. 370.33).

The management of these public forests is finalized to soil hydrogeological protection, environmental protection, landscape, biodiversity, flora and fauna, improvement of wood production and the relative products, promotion of social uses of forests, recreational-cultural activities, and promotion of economic activities in the fields of forestry and agriculture.

These public forests are used under the provisions of a Management Plan approved by the Regional Council of Tuscany; it implements specific technical guidelines of the Tuscany Region finalized to gradually guide the beech forests to more like-nature structures. Actually, many beech woods derive from coppices and are now developing into high stands. Thinning of adult coniferous forests is also regularly applied in order to start the regeneration of the forests near to the maturity age.

The silvicultural interventions are planned to obtain products with neutral and positive value of timber while maintaining the ecological stability of the stands and the soil protection. An operative management of the forest that allows to portray the higher volume from silvicultural interventions when compatible with the requirements of sustainable forest use.

Who we are

The LIFE AForClimate project aims to provide concrete options to achieve solutions in forestry and forest planning  that are effective in adapting to climate change.  The objective is to adapt the management of the beech forests (Fagus sylvatica) to the variability of climate and its changes during time by programming forest management and interventions on the basis of climate cycles.
