Forest 2011–San Marino


The Europa 2011 theme is dedicated to forests. The San Marino Post have issued a set of two stamps on April 5, 2011. The issued stamps depicted  images which  have been taken in the Teso Forest of the Municipality of San Marcello Pistoiese in the Tosco-Emilian Apennine.




The set is made up of two values: the € 0.60 value represents an age-old lush, flourishing forest, contrasted with the image of the 0.65€ value, which shows a pile of tree-trunks as a symbol of man’s repeated, uncontrolled and unauthorised exploitation.
