International Forest Company is dedicated to “Helping People Grow Trees” and as our staff attends meetings and learn new information concerning the forest industry we want to share with you.
Recently Wayne Bell and Chris Johnston attended a meeting in Virginia and brought back new information and insight of the forest industry.
This photo shows the installation of the PINEMAP STUDY installed near Appomattox, VA. IFCO is part of the Forest Productivity Coop where they toured the research site and heard scientists give the latest research results. The photo shows one of several water exclusion plots where rainfall is artificially reduced to measure the effects on the forest. This research will investigate the interactive effects of various climatic conditions on the growth of trees and the understory. Stay tuned for the results of this dynamic research in the next two to three years. Dr. Tom Fox of Virginia Tech University was the tour hosts.
