    The Eddy Arboretum at Placerville, California, contains more than 90 species, varieties, and hybrids of pines, and is therefore of great interest to horticulturists. The Arboretum was established in 1925 as a source of breeding stock for the Eddy Tree Breeding Station, founded in the same year by Mr. James G. Eddy of Seattle. In 1934 Mr. Eddy presented the Arboretum and Station, now called the Institute of Forest Genetics, to the people of the United States. and the U.S. Forest Service carries on the program of tree breeding.
