become a “VIRTUAL FARMER” – SAVE AN OLIVE TREE

WHY ADOPT AN OLIVE TREE

Why Adopting A tree in tenuta torciano

I and my family is asking to help us in this wonderful program. The olive tree is a heritage of Italy, of Tuscany and of our lands to be preserved and cultivated with care. It gives us an irreplaceable product and a contribution to health and all us we utilize the olive oil in our dishes.

environmental benefit

With this program together we save 7200 of old Olive trees and we preserve the environment and its ecosystem by guaranteeing a high contribution of CO2 absorption every year! Each year, an olive tree absorbs large amounts of harmful carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and returns oxygen.

– 730 kg CO2 per year

This amount of CO2 corresponds to 5.256.000 CO2 less in the earth.

    pIERLUIGI AND GIACHI’S FAMILY “SAVE A OLIVE TREE PROGRAm”

    The idea was born when Pierluigi Giachi found himself in this large hilly area in the tuscan area, which around the 1980s, where there are many ancient olive trees, was abandoned due to difficulties in processing. The reasons for this abandonment can be found in the fact that it is a very demanding activity that is difficult to cultivate and maintain, compared to the vine, in the Chianti tuscany area with greater yield and ease of cultivation.
    Pierluigi and his Tenuta Torciano wanted to restore life, strength and courage to these beautiful plants, abandoned for years, in order not to lose a unique cultural and productive heritage in our beautiful Tuscany and now we is asking you to help us to SAVE these oliveyards.

    OUR OLIVE TREE ARE SICK – HELP US KEEP THEM IN HEALTH 

    These wonderful old plants are now in a state of neglect , they are exposed to the aggression of weeds, such as ivy, which envelops and suffocates the trunk, and parasites and diseases that cause deterioration and death of the olive trees.

    Ivy and other parasite plants envelop and suffocate the olive trees. A great deal of manual work is required to restore it to good conditions.

    A great threat is what we call ‘fumaggine’ (sooty mould), a disease caused by a fungus that accumulates on leaves and trunks, making them the color of smoke.

    “Xylella” is another very dangerous disease caused by a bacterium that has caused the loss of thousands of plants in southern Italy, becoming a real emergency.
