Lake Plastiras as well as the wider region features a rich ecosystem, which is ideal for the development of beekeeping and the production of high quality propolis.
The harmony and beauty of the landscape gives the impression that the lake is natural, and only the existence of the dam indicates that it is the result of an artificial project.
The lake was formed in 1959 when the dam was completed on the southern edge of the plateau of Nevropolis in the county of Karditsa.
The continental climate of the region and pristine countryside contributed to the development of an exceptional flora.
The most representative species in the region is the broadleaved oak, chestnut and the spruce. There are even species of herbaceous vegetation such as ferns, geraniums, cyclamen, crocuses, narcissi, orchid species and a wide variety of herbs such as lemon balm, balsam, laurel, sea buckthorn, thyme, oregano, nettle etc.
