New summer, new round of inventories!
Between August and September 2022 SLU and Skogfrosk members will travel to check the health condition of more than 400 ash trees in Sweden. Those that are still vital are intended to be used to produce more resilient ash trees. With the forest owner's permission, we will take scions to make copies. These will then be planted out in field trials where their resistance will be tested under more controlled conditions.
You can see the areas we are planning to visit on the map below.
Although we have collected a lot of data, we are always open to new tips about vital ash trees! Don´t hesitate to contact us.
Have a nice summer,
Bea, Mateusz and Michelle
