First Forestation – Location Update

Total Croatia News

With the first (out of three) forestation behind the corner, here is the recent update from the Sustainable Island Association – Information about the location of the first forestation of 1 ha of indigenous Dalmatian black pine. Thanks to Mario Vranković for the information and pictures. 
This is a wonderful oportunity to get to know the island from a different perspective and give back to its beautiful nature at the same time. Will be a great Saturday, for sure. The weather should be ideal, as the rain should stop on Saturday with bura clearing the sky for a sunny forestation. Join the Sustainable Island Association this Saturday, January 16, 2016 and follow them on Facebook for all additional info.

“According to the historians, it is an old Venetian path – from Svirče to St. Nicholas 626 m.a.s.l (the highest peak of the Hvar island) and at the same time the path to the south side of the island (Sv. Nedija, Jagodna, Bojanić Bad and Ivan Dolac).


One of the most beautiful hikes in Croatia, come and judge for yourself! A mild ascent from Svirče passing a traditional landscape of vineyards and fields of lavender, untouched, i.e. abandoned fields with beautiful panoramic views of the island. Views you have certainly not seen before – hidden valleys of vineyards, olives and lavender and recently immortelle flower.

The location is above the “Oštra Glava”, with a unique view of the island and the slopes of Krušvica, recently replanted Plančić vineyards (you can see how the island looked 100 years ago), then the Stari Grad Plain, Brač (Vidova Gora and Zlatni rat), Makarska Riviera and Sv. Juraj at Biokovo (1762 m.a.s.l.) and the Hvar channel, Jelsa, Vrboska, Stari Grad, Dol, Vrbanj, Svirče, Vrisnik, Murvica on Brač and the Blaca desert.
If this would not be enough, there are several examples of the very old Dalmatian black pine (400-500 years old) at this location.

Meeting place on Saturday 16, 2016 in front of the olive mill in Svirče at 10:00. Bring your own hoe, if possible – as we need to make holes of 40x40x40 cm. Water will be available and after the forestation a lunch will be prepared by the Tartajun association for all participants.”
