On February 7, a team composed by Tamara Sánchez, Mariano Rodríguez, Irene Bocos (UVA), Zuleica García (IRNASA-CSIC), and Iván Franco (IDFOREST), visited La Honfria forest to carry out field sampling activities.

In line with the preparatory action “Mapping Forest Health” (A.1), the working team collected soil and wood samples from selected chestnut trees. First, a total of 5 trees were selected on each plot of this demonstrative area. Then, soil, wood, and bark samples of each tree were taken separately. A hole was dug near selected trees, in line with future actions of the LIFE Mycorestore project.
