Expedition to Stoderzinken Alps, Austria

mesterhazypinetum
November 17, 2012

Late October a friendly company of Franz Etzelstorfer, Ladislav Krejci, Vaclav Vostrak and Zdenek Novak went back to the Stoderzinken Alps, where Franz his first brooms found in 1996. That time he was going to try to collect brooms, as Horstmann earlier did it.

This expedition was a very special one. Franz collected his 60th cembra broom in his loved mountains.

Krejci and Novak found further 3 brooms, but we have no photos yet of them.

We have after 16 years over 220 cembra brooms in Austria, and about 550 detected all kind brooms of Franz.

Congratulations to Franz Etzelstorfer of his historic find!

    Hi,
    Sorry for the little mistake....Picea abies Pest ist finding from Mr. Vaclav Kral, not finding by Mr. Pexidr.....
    Mr. Pexidr got the unbroken WB and was the first one he grafted....
