Beech and silver fir - Gariglione-Pisarello State Biogenetic State Reserve


The Gariglione Forest was an asset of the Bourbon Crown until the 19th century; sold to the Poerio family for services rendered to the monarchy, it subsequently passed to the Banco di Napoli and, in 1911, to the German company Huelsberg of Charlottenburg; expropriated by the state property as a subject of a former enemy, it was sold to the State Company for State Forests in 1924. The English naturalist Norman Douglas, who visited this forest at the time of the fullness and magnificence of the forest, expressed himself in enthusiastic terms, considering it an authentic Urwald, that is, a virgin forest never touched by man, made up of thousands of pine and bearded fir trees. The area is characterized by mixed tall beech and white fir woods, whose local "Gariglione" ecotype is particularly tolerant to acid rain.
