DescriptionThe tree-breeding work of the Northeastern Forest Experiment Station has its roots in a project started in 1924 by the Oxford Paper Company of Rumford, Maine, to develop fast-growing poplars that would be suitable for pulpwood. The initial tree-breeding work in this project was done by A. B. Stout and Ernst J. Schreiner, most of it at the New York Botanical Garden and in the city parks of Rochester, N. Y. The hybrids developed were placed in test plantations near Rumford, Maine.
