Description

"This location was used as an intensely managed pasture for more than 15 years, and was planted with grasses suitable for cattle grazing. Site preparation involved herbicide application to remove existing grasses, subsoiling, preparation for possible irrigation installation, and planting of trees in flat beds. The areas surrounding the test site consist of experimental forest trees, agricultural crops and less than 25 year-old hardwoods and pine.
Up to 4,000 containerized trees, inc luding non-transgenic trees, could be transferred to this site and planted in field test plots of up to 5 acres over the next three years. Field trials of the same clone (EH1) were planted at this site on approximately 1.35 acres of test plots under permit #08-039-102rm. All tests except approximately 0.2 acre were subsequently terminated. The remaining 0.2 acres would be transferred to permit # 08-014-101rm to allow
flowering.
