Poplar trees planted on Eau Claire’s south side for research program
EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) -Nearly 100 poplar trees were planted by volunteers Friday at Bollinger Fields on Eau Claire’s South side.
This was part of a National Science Foundation-Supported Research program studying the adaptiveness of tree species in varied climates.
UW-Eau Claire Assistant Biology Professor Nora Mitchell says poplars are a great model system for studying trees.
UW-Eau Claire is among 18 arboretums and universities in North America participating in the NSF program.
