Evans Country


"This location has been a commercial nursery for forest seedling production for over 30 years. Site preparation involved herbic ide application, subsoiling and planting of trees in flat beds. The areas surrounding the test site consist of nursery beds of forest tree seedlings, experimental forest trees, agricultural crops and mixed stands of hardwood and pine.
Up to 4,000 containerized trees, inc luding non-transgenic trees, could be transferred to this field test site and planted on field plots of up to 5 acres over the next three years. A field trial of the same clone (EH1) was planted on approximately 0.2 acres at this site that is now covered under BRS permit # 08-039-102rm. This trial would be transferred to permit # 08-011-106rm to allow flowering." (APHIS 2010)
