Bioforest is an association for the regeneration of natural environments that was founded in 1998 in Valcucine from the desire to promote a production culture that is more sensitive to the environment. 
To this end, it proposes to finance projects aimed at the reforestation and reforestation of destroyed or degraded forest ecosystems in Italy and around the world, following strict ecological criteria in harmony with the characteristics of the areas concerned, in order to protect the plant and animal biodiversity originally present. Furthermore, it promotes and supports scientific research activities by disseminating them through information media, meetings, debates, and conferences aimed at bringing visibility to active projects.
