Detailed description

The EH1 eucalyptus clone is a Eucalyptus grandis X E. urophylla hybrid developed by ArborGen in Brazil. It was then genetically modified by ArborGen in New Zealand to create several events that are either cold tolerant, have altered growth rate, altered lignin synthesis or a combination of these traits. The trees were then brought to the USA and released there in several field trials.
The application papers give little information about the actual genetic modification and don't specify which events are to be released at which of the 23 locations. Until further information is available these events are summarized together here.

"There are existing transgenic Eucalyptus field trials of the same clone (EH1) at this location [Baldwin County Alabama site] that were planted on approximately 7 acres of test plots under Notifications and Permits 06-325-111r, 08-039-102rm, 05-256-03n, 06-135-01n, 06-150-02n, 07-093-113n and, 07-159-103n. Trees at this location have been allowed to flower under permit 06-325-111r on approximately 6.2 acres. Up to 8,000 additional trees will be transferred to this field test site and planted in field plots of up to 10 acres (at around 300 - 600 trees per acre) over the next three years." (APHIS 2009)<
