Location: North-East of Sardinia
The forest of Mount Pisanu (or Mount Pisano) is a public property and has been protected since 1886. Its surface area covers a total of 4927 acres, distributed between the municipalities of Bono and Bottida, in the Province of Sassari.
The forest of Mount Pisanu is characterized by oaks, cork oak trees and evergreen oaks and it's the ideal place for beautiful walks and trekking hikes. While visiting this green lung, families can show children how beautiful and suggestive nature can be.
In the forester barracks, there's a collection of wood samples: an interesting classification of arboreal species and a beautiful example of environmental education.
One of the characteristics of this forest is the presence of centuries old yew-trees, that have been declared Natural Monuments in 1994. These ancient trunks can reach one meter in diameter and over 10 metres in height.
On the highest part of the mount the arboreal vegetation is thin and leaves room to rocks covered with thyme, helichrysum and cistus. A way to remind us we are in Sardinia and that the Mediterranean maquis is everywhere the real queen of the territory.
