DescriptionMichigan State University's first provenance test was started in 1958, a little more than a decade ago. Tests in three more species were started in 1959. Others have been added until the list of species covered now totals 28. There are such experiments in eight species of pine, six of elm, three of spruce, two each of larch and the true firs, and one each of Douglas-fir, poplar, birch, cherry, walnut, arborvitae and oak. Some were started by Michigan State University. In other cases we received planting stock or seeds from outside the State. Almost all the experiments are part of the NC-51 regional tree improvement project and involve cooperation with others.
