In mid-February, part of the team travelled close to the outskirts of Beauraing to find and inspect potential plots for the Arboretums.
The aim was to examine the soil to check that each plot was in line with the environmental requirements of the species that will be planted next autumn.
Other searches will take place in the coming weeks at various locations in Belgium.
This is also an opportunity to introduce you to our two work-experience students.
The first, Victoria Boël, will be working with us for a month as part of her studies in sustainable development.
The second, Victoria Rousset, will be on secondment with us for 6 months as part of her engineering studies AgroParisTech centre in Nancy.
