Conservazione e recupero delle praterie xero-termiche della Valle di Susa mediante la gestione pastorale

Semi-natural dry-grassland consevation and restoration in Valle Susa through grazing management

C1. Restoration of parts of the habitat

Juniperus oxycedrus (Orrido di Foresto)

The action C1 was completed.

The actions intend to recover, on various terrain, a total of about 20 ha of the habitat 6210* (which includes approximately 10 ha of habitat invaded by trees and shrubs and about 10 ha of habitat invaded by shrubs) through manual clearing and logging services. The interventions will be carried out in a methodical manner across the entire region of the two areas (83 ha). The ground recovered (20 ha) varies from 15 square meters (area containing a few individual shrubs) to about 0.7 ha (ground containing significant amounts of trees and shrubs). The actual size of the areas of intervention will be evaluated and properly quantified only as a result of the preliminary actions. Interventions need to simultaneously evaluate the importance of maintaining ecological networks for wildlife whilst also providing, where necessary, interventions to spots where ground is recoverable rather than a single area of intervention.
