Contamination of fruits and leaves from various trees with 137Cs from the Chernobyl accident was systematically studied from 1987 to 1990 on two farms in Northern Greece. Measured biological half-lives for 137Cs are in good agreement with a recently presented model. Contamination of leaves and fruits of trees planted before the accident decays exponentially with time. Contamination of trees planted after the Chernobyl accident was also studied.
