Project seed orchard


Project work for the establishment of Tilia cordata seed orchard at Lokorsko tree nursery is progressing.

In the end of July project team organized the collection of genetic material (sprays) of Tilia cordata from the territory of Plana Natura 2000 site. Collected sprays were used for the engrafting of more than 100 lime seedlings at the Lokorsko nursery. In addition an experiment for the production of vegetative seedlings from sprays of Tilia cordata was started at the nursery under the project.
