Aims The Ilam Gas Refinery (IGR) emitting atmospheric trace elements affect soils and Baneh trees (Pistacia atlantica Desf.) of semi-arid Zagros forests. Therefore, the seasonal concentrations of Pb, As, Cu, Cr, Mn, Zn, Ni, and S were analyzed in soils, barks, and leaves of trees located at various distances (1000, 1500, 2000, 2500, and 10,000 m (control) from the refinery.
