In November, extraction of sand ended in another part of the Cep II sand pit. Represntatives of the Administration of PLA Třeboňsko, the owner of the sand pit Českomoravský Štěrk a.s. and our team agreed that a substantial part of the area would be left to the spontaneous succession after a slight modeling of the surface. Part of this area was designated to research. Forestry reclamation was carried out only in 15 meters wide stripes along the way.
In December, the modeling of the surface and creation of experimental plots was performed (see picture). Sandy and loamy plots were created where the spontaneous recovery of dry grasslands will be studied.
