Oak

Oak

The oak breeding seedling orchards are still many years from producing quantities of seed, and even when it is produced, it will be in very small amounts. We are studying the feasibility of promoting early flowering and seed production, and if feasible, a means of rapid multiplication of seedlings by vegetative means.

Walnut

Walnut

Adequate trials exist for walnut, and one of the major findings has been to discover that shelter during the early years after planting is much more critical for this species than any other. Investigations into the most suitable silvicultural techniques will continue, mostly by the Earth Trust at Little Wittenham
