Mine restauration showing excellent results

Today, the Volterra team did another round of monitoring visits in Alcover (Tarragona area). We also checked the mine restoration project. Mines are very challenging to restore as there is almost no top soil and just rocks and stones. In this FTI trial with the new Cocoons we managed approx. 85% survival rate and this was very well received by the owners. Their traditional planting season is just a few weeks in December due to availability of rain water and cold climate. But the oaks and pines with Cocoons were planted last May 2017, which was considered impossible.
