Research Plot Installation
Research plots are expensive, time consuming, and invaluable. We can make sure your installation is
sited so that differences in soil don’t confound your results.
First we will examine the general area where you want your plots. We’ll identify uniform areas and
highly variable areas. We can give you a good idea of how well this site represents your land.
If your site is selected, we will map the micro site variation so that all of your plots are located on very
similar soils. Your results will reflect your treatments and not soil interaction.
If your experimental design requires soil descriptions or sampling we can handle those chores for you.
We have measured many progeny tests and slivicultural installations in both pine and eucalyptus.
We've installed fertilizer treatments and imposed thinning regimes. We've managed installations from
site selection to pinning to planting to treatments to measurements.
