During Autumn 2019, the Padilla de Abajo council team and Fundación Oxígeno organized the monitoring visit to the replication site. The information collected registered, in general, a good growth, despite of a very dry summer both in 2018 and 2019.
600 trees were planted back in February 2018, 250 of which with cocoons. The registered survival rates are 70% for cocoons vs 30-40% controls.
Also, in Spring 2019, 200 more trees were planted and agreement have been made to plant 300 more with cocoons this Autumn.
Today we take the chance to appreciate the work of many local volunteers, who received the certificate shown below for participating in the Padilla de Abajo planting event.
