The wood

a_boscoThe appropriate managing of the fir woods is a distinctive feature of the life of the communities of Trentino. In the room there is presented the essential tool-kit for working in the woods. Dendrological scale and forestry hammer to mark the trees that are due to be felled. Implements for felling: axes and wedges, and finally pickaxes and chains to be used for the pulling of the timber out of the wood. A so-called xila from lower Valsugana is an original structure carved out of a single trunk of beech, that would protect the hind-legs of the horses that were meant to pull down the timber from particularly steep woods. bosco
