Mansi's Plot

Planted in November 2007

Species: Mostly larch

Planted for Mansi Desai's PhD thesis - a study into the heavy metal contamination in the soil. Mansi was one of Martin Haigh's students at Oxford Brookes at that time and regularly collected leaf samples to test them for various heavy metals.

Other comments:
Mansi has completed her PhD thesis.

In summer 2018 we measured Mansi's plot of trees so that some comparisons could be made with the use of fertiliser on planting. This was to help when writing up the paper on the 10 year Earthwatch/Syrinx results.
