The site was not auspicious - it turned out to be the route of an old asphalt road, and we planters broke a pick! The trees needed a lot of watering the first two years to make up for it - it was done by former colleagues of Dr. Clark until they were established. I'm looking after the trees as an NRC alumni.
The C was extended in 2004 with a ginkgo tree in memory of another CISTI employee, Sheri Campbell.
