SUPPORT RESEARCH TO SAVE OUR FORESTS
A new emergency threatens our forests: the bark beetle infestation.
The Vaia storm of 2018 led to the destruction of entire forests throughout north-eastern of Italy, bringing forth the proliferation of the bark beetle. Naturally present in these forests, this small beetle mainly feeds on damaged and fallen spruce trees. The great availability of woody material present and recent meteorological trends have allowed the bark beetle populations to grow from an endemic to a complete infestation.

Over a three year period, the amount of dead forest land has brought downat least 8 million trees due to the beetle infestation, which may cause longer lasting and more damage than Vaia Storm ever did.

Unfortunately, wys to limited and control the infestation are limited. We must invest in the study and research of the phenomenon to prevent additional proliferations of this and other parasites in the future.

In response to this emergency, the research project on the bark beetle has begun. Conducted by the Department of Land, Environment, Agriculture and Forestry (TESAF) and the Department of Agronomy, Food, Natural Resources, Animals and Environment (DAFNAE) of the University of Padua, the projecnt began thanks to the precious collaboration with the communication agency AKQA s.r.l and with the Treviso playing card company Dal Negro.

The project will finance two three-year research doctorates in Forestry Sciences and Entomology that are aimed at studying the bark beetle infestation and new prevention methods for the futures.
