Our Story

Alasia Franco Building

The use of wood biomass as an alternative to fossil fuels is crucial for environmental and energy protection/sustainability. Short rotation coppice (SRC) and short rotation forestry (SRF) employ fast-growing species in a cultivation system based on high densities and short cutting cycles for the production of biomass used in bioenergy and bioproducts.

Alasia Franco Vivai is one of the major European producers of plant material for multifunctional wood cultivations.
Our main areas of expertise are genetic improvement for fast-growing species used in dedicated plantations, and the production of plant material for traditional, SRC and SRF cultivation systems.
