Last year we co-operated with the village of Bork, Kyritz in Brandenburg to prolong our Stranger to the Trees experiment on the effect of microplastic on birch tree growth. Bork have provided the Studio Austen birches with a home that allows us to continue to collect scientifically valid data in a long-term experiment. We would like to thank Bernhard Bosecker and the mayor Matthias Strauß for the kind support and oppourtunity.
Newspaper Märkische Allgemeine (MAZ) has published an article explaining ‘Stranger to the Trees’ and the long-term experiment we have started in Kyritz. Read the article “Mikroplastik und Bäume: Langzeitexperiment in Kyritz gestartet” or download it in pdf format (in German).
