Revitalising the Piccole Dolomiti wood value-chain with local charcoal production

In the prealpine area of Piccole Dolomiti, chestnut trees are part of the local heritage but have lost their traditional role for the local economy over the past 50 years. Foresters want to restore the regional wood value-chain by using wood waste to produce locally made wood charcoal.

Chestnut trees’ wood has been largely used in the past in the Veneto region to produce poles, furniture, fixtures and handcrafts but global competition decreased its importance in the wood market. Foresters gathered in the CAREGA project (Certified charcoal for the active recovery of the economy and the environmental management of “Piccole Dolomiti Vicentine”) want to revitalise marginalised territories through the creation of new business opportunities based on the sustainable exploitation of local wood.

The final objective is to place on the market locally made and PEFC certified charcoal to encourage the use of timber residues, the consumption of local products and the sustainable management of forests. Discover in our good practice how it works!
