I’m coming from Venice, not properly a forested area…but I love woods, from mountain to tropical forests , so I decided to study forestry sciences. Forests give me the possibility to have recreational activities, to relax, and now they provide me also a job...so I can declare that my relationship with forests is really good.
Hard to choose my favourite non-wood forest product! But if I have to decide, I vote for wild berries, as strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, because they remind me my chilhood summers, passed walking in the forest and picking wood-specialities.. and obviously because they are delicious!
In StarTree I am a Ph.D. student working with the WP3 group, mainly involved in SME case-study, collecting and analysing data.
