2021 summer trials


These trials are over. But you can still participate in the 2021-2026 trials!


These trials were aimed at testing the various steps involved in a participatory project. Our participants were citizens and NGOs from Scotland, France, Switzerland, Italy, Hungary and Bulgaria.

In this phase, we tested four silver fir and European beech provenances using direct seeding (see Glossary). We tested the effect of seed predation by rodents (using mesh cages) and competition (using weed exclusion sheets). Participants monitored the germination rate, the phenology of seedling emergence, and measured the height of seedlings at the end of the growing season.

Data analysis is in progress and results will be posted here soon.
