Franz Etzelstorfer in Austria started to search after Pinus cembra brooms, as he was informed about the shots of Gunther Horstmann. Horstmann found in 1977 some cembra brooms in the Tamangur Mts., which became later a ground to further discoveries. (HB 1-5). The # 2 has got a name of Matterhorn and became a famous exemplar. Clement has shown us in the spring his aged Matterhorn.
The first expedition of Franz brought 2 new brooms in the 90s, and later on he got new friends in the discovery actions as Frantisek Borovec, J�rg Kohout, Ladislav Krejci, David Holubec.
By this way in Cesko was known yet about the discovery tours, and more people joined to the company. The founder 'Fathers' are really deep in the broom harvests, which were all time hold after a summer dicsovery.
Today its a history, but the "Company" becomes every year new members. Miroslav Malik, Franz Pirklhuber, Milan Simanek, Zdenek Novak joined to the founders, and it was a good decision. They found year to year more and more. As it was clear, that the "industrial kind of broom harvest" needs a solide backstage for grafting, came Mr. Malik, who cares now about the propagations and the introduction of the new cembra selections to the market.
Enjoy please the Pinus cembras of the Etzelstorfer Gardens.
