SPAY realises studies and puts in place projects of reforestation, pruning & stump grinding, weeds cleaning, flood protection and rubbish removal.
The Union buys and supplies forest protection equipment -such as water tanks and hydraulic systems- to the municipalities. Moreover, it supports municipal voluntary forest fire protection groups, providing those with cars, other equipment and a camera monitoring system of the forest.
SPAY also tries to increase citizens’ awareness on environmental issues, emphasising on younger ages.
The Union participated in European environmental research projects such as LIFE08/NAT/GR/000539 AMIBIO project (2010-2013), and «New Skills for New Jobs in the Forest Sector (DRYMOS)», a Lifelong Learning Program - Leonardo da Vinci - Transfer of Innovation project (2012 – 2014).
