This essay is devoted to the eastern Alpine area, among the region best known for the history of forest resources. With a wide and diversified demand for timber for its industries (Arsenal, glassworks, mint) and early forestry legislation, Venice con-ditioned ways and times of supplying this resource, imported even from outside its borders. In the pre-industrial age, the area between Tyrol and Friuli constituted a basin ca-pable of satisfying multiple needs in the Adriatic and Mediterranean emporiums. The many natural constraints of forests and river routes imposed a supply chain fragmentation that involved many workers' employment. These activities were mainly dependent on environmental and climatic conditions and required large amounts of capital and the technical skills of specialized personnel. They were or-ganized around kinship networks and family firms, which could constitute a pre-condition for preserving/maintaining investments in the field.
Keywords: the Alps, Venice, Timber Trade, Early Modern, Family Firms, Envi-ronmental History.
