It 'was shown the technique of grafting to Abies alba.

The Forestry Research CRA Arezzo, Fulvio Ducci, has experienced this delicate type of graft and played a practical lesson to the workers of the nurseries FLORAMIATA (SI) and the Mountain Community of  Casentino (AR). The grafts were performed using the following material:

twigs collected from sites Pigelleto and Mount La Verna in Casentino. The grafts were harvested from plants identified on the ground with a number and your GPS position.
rootstocks of two types: 2 +2 and 2 +3

types of engagement are:
Direct, on drums with a size between 7 and 5 mm
the side of the stem

The grafts were transferred in a cold greenhouse (T ° C 15-16) with a constant humidity
