Reforestation monitoring has begun
This week Life Nieblas' team has started seedling monitoring for this season's reforestation.
A concise process of morphological measurements it's being carried out that will help determine seedling's development in the future.
These measurements will be taken annually helping Life Nieblas understand how these Laurisilva species adapt to the reforested land and which reforestation method (tested in this project) has been more efficient in terms of growth and survival rates.
We seek to sample 30% of the total planted trees. Such sample equates to around 2000 individual trees.
Root growth dry mass will be analysed at the end of the project for a hand full of individuals in order to determine root growth during the four years of development.
