Restoration of the Cicerchia canal (Latina Italy)

A few weeks ago we completed the restoring action of Cicerchia Canal, inside the Ganci farm of Latina, in the Agro pontino.

We eliminated invasive and non-native species such as the common reed (Arundo donax) and planted native trees and shrubs (including english oak, elm and ash).

The action aims to increase biodiversity in the Ganci farm. Farm is involved in the construction, management and maintenance of projects by signing land custody agreements.

We aim to reconstitute a strip of riparian vegetation capable of fulfilling important naturalistic, landscape and mitigation functions of the percolating polluting load.

Similar actions will affect the canal in the Agrilatina farm.

Here the redevelopment of the riparian vegetation and of the entire ecosystem of the canal is underway through the creation of a band of herbaceous and arboreal-shrub vegetation along the left bank, the control of invasive vegetation and the partial removal of the Rubus, sowing of herbaceous species in regression.
