For those wishing to stay in touch with nature and to keep cool during the summer, a few kilometres from Trapani in the Buseto Palizzolo countryside there is the wooded area of Arcudaci (until recently called Scorace), of approximately 750 hectares, which is also a state-owned equipped picnic/barbecue area seating 350 with convenient cooking points and numerous trails. Also in the facility there are parking areas for vehicles, rest-rooms, a children's play area and partial accessibility for the disabled.
Just after the Second World War, the area was the subject of a dangerous deforestation, which caused the disappearance of cork oaks. Later the the State Forestry commission worked tirelessly to replant the wood, favouring conifers and eucalyptus trees.
The wooded area of Arcudaci or Scorace, as it is better known, is unfortunately one of only a few naturalistic areas in the province of Trapani. The flora includes broom, oak, elm, the strawberry tree and some typical Mediterranean species. The animals include the hare, the rabbit, the robin and the viper.
