8 field trials of 12 vegetative materials in Eastern Catalonia

The aim of this experience is to have a better knowledge about the ecologic requirements of different valuable broadleaved species, regarding climate, soil, altitude, etc. This will help the choice of appropriate vegetative materials at each site.

During February and March 2010 we established 8 field trials or "micro-plantations" at the Eastern part of Catalonia, each one hosting 12 valuable broadleaves vegetative material. The map shows the location of every plantation. For further information, please click on each point.
