Vaso Charitopoulou's picture

The Pholoe oak forest is located in southwestern Greece, in a plateau area at an altitude of about 600 m. It is an ecosystem that is unique in Europe as it is a high forest of even-aged oaks.

A reliable asexual propagation method for oaks is crucial for intrducing superior hybrid oak selections into the nursery trade as named cultivars.
