A general view overlooking the area of Fleet Nursery where the Forest Research team grew the young trees for their field experiments. Th small lots are indicated by the patch work of seed beds, each for a different species or seed parents. Compare these with the more expansive seed beds of the regular part of the forest nursery in the back ground.
Names and photographs of people who worked here would be very welcome.
