Discussion on the results of research carried out so far and plans for further stages of the project took place on 19 September in place as beautiful as last year. This year we visited the Institute of Dendrology of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Kórnik, where we could admire the local arboretum. Now that we have been enriched with constructive criticism and words of support from such prominent specialists, all we have to do is make the necessary adjustments and move on. You can read about the results of the next research within the project in the next news!
