Among the properties of Count Giacomo Ceconi there was also a forest. His heirs donated it to the Ente friulano di Economia Montana in 1940 and it then passed to the Autonomous Region of Friuli Venezia Giulia. One of the entrances to the forest is located near the Ceconi Castle.
Since 2004 it has been managed according to PEFC certification, which attests to its sustainability. Since 2007, about 90% of the surface area, about 1,000 hectares, has been subject to the preservation of the natural environment with wilderness areas, where human intervention is excluded or reduced to a minimum.
The beech forest dominates here, but there are many other species. Many animals live here, such as chamois, deer, roe deer, martens, badgers, alpine hares and many birds, including the golden eagle.
