Do you have a suitable site for the Future Trees Trust?

posted on September 22, 2015

The Sycamore Group of the Future Trees Trust are looking for two 1ha sites in the UK (northern England and southern England) to establish progeny trials of sycamore.  The trees have been raised in Ireland with seed from a qualified seed orchard.  This seed orchard is comprised of plus trees selected from across the UK and Ireland.  Trees are 2 year old cell grown, from 35 clones.

They are looking to plant the trial this winter at well drained sites suitable for growing sycamore, and will provide a planting plan and trees free of charge.  After 15 years of testing, the progeny trial can be rogued to provide the owner with a tested seed orchard of the highest quality.

Please contact Gerry Douglas for further details and to arrange a site visit – gerry.douglas@teagasc.ie
