Black poplar

Large tree reaching 40 meters in height, widespread in the countryside along the waterways. Poplar wood is particularly light and it was once used for manufacturing tool handles, wooden clogs (locally known as “sgalmare”) and as firewood. This tree was also often planted to mark crossroads: as those intersections are no longer visible, today one can still rarely see a solitary tree in the middle of the fields.
