The oldest larches from the valley Val di Sole are on the Trentino side of the park Parco dello Stelvio above the mountain farms Malga Pontevecchio and the trail to Malga Verdignana. They are centuries-old larches, dated back to the fourth century. This thematic itinerary is one of the four itineraries named “Sentieri Dendrocronologici del Parco Nazionale dello Stelvio” (dendrochronological itineraries of the park Parco Nazionale dello Stelvio), designed thanks to the dendrochronology, which is the study of the annual tree-rings.

Author’s recommendation

Thanks to the dendrochronological specific studies, based on the living trees and some pieces of old trees, it was discovered that these ancient trees are witnesses of the climate changes of the valley Val di Sole at the time of the “little ice age” (1580-1850) and during the present global warming (since 1850).
