Nelle Marche 300 alberi per ogni cittadino

See on Scoop.itHideaway Le Marche

La superficie boschiva totale è di 308.000 ettari

Per ogni cittadino marchigiano ci sono circa trecento alberi. Il dato è stato diffuso oggi dalla Coldiretti regionale, che mette le Marche al terzo posto tra le regioni per numero di piante rispetto alla superficie. Per l’associazione degli agricoltori si tratta del beneficio della norma che prevede l’obbligo per i comuni sopra i 15.000 abitanti di mettere a dimora una nuova pianta per ogni bambino nato. Secondo un’analisi Coldiretti, sulla base dell’ultimo inventario nazionale del Corpo Forestale dello Stato, le Marche contano 518 milioni di alberi. Complessivamente, ci sono 308 mila ettari di superficie forestale, quasi un terzo di quella totale e oltre il doppio di quella registrata negli anni sessanta (140 mila ettari). La provincia con il maggior numero di boschi è quella di Pesaro-Urbino (121 mila ettari), davanti a Macerata (87 mila ettari), Ascoli Piceno e Fermo (69 mila ettari) e Ancona (31 mila ettari).

Sarah Topps‘s insight:

The total forest area in Le Marche is 308,000 hectares, so for every citizen  there are about three hundred trees. This data was released today by the regional Coldiretti, which puts Le Marche in to the third place among the regions for number of plants per surface area.

For the farmers’ association, there is also the benefit of the rule which obliges the municipalities of over 15,000 inhabitants, to plant a new tree for every child born.

According to an analysis, Coldiretti, based on the latest national inventory of the State Forestry Corps, Le Marche has 518 million trees. Altogether, there are 308 000 hectares of forest area, this is nearly one-third of the total and more than double that was recorded in the sixties (140,000 hectares).

The province with the highest number of forests is  Pesaro-Urbino (121,000 hectares), ahead of Macerata (87,000 hectares), Ascoli Piceno and Fermo (69,000 hectares) and Ancona (31,000 hectares).
