The first phase, which ran until mid-February 2021, involved growing the plants in a forest nursery, followed by its plantation in six different locations on a total area of 35 hectares in central and northern Portugal.


The first results suggest that radiata pine plants from Chile are more resilient in the Portuguese setting. These plants had a very positive performance in all environments and soils where the test is being carried out and even proved more resilient than other pine species/provenances previously introduced in Portugal. To minimize the effect of the climate on the results, the process was repeated in 2022.
