The week of May 18th, 2022, the IRNASA-CSIC team carried out the monitoring and follow-up of the forest health indicators in the demonstration areas of the LIFE MycoRestore project: Cubo de Don Sancho, Valdelosa, Linares de Riofrío and the Alamedilla. For this, soil samples were collected from the different selected plots to check their pH evolution and other chemical parameters.

The levels of chlorophyll, anthocyanins and nitrogen balance indices were also measured in the leaves of the trees in order to compare the values of the plots with healthy trees with those with diseased trees.
