The trees of the experimental field have been selected, marked, and are being measured on a weekly basis.
It is still winter but our agronomists are already at the work on the field. In particular the samples trees that will be monitored in the next 3 years have been fixed and marked, and our agronomists are performing on a weekly basis the needed measurements and checks to follow the evolution of the plans. If you don't see much green in this photos, remember it is still winter !
