The National Aspen Clone Collection
Eadha maintains a nationally significant collection of native clones from across Scotland and Northern England in its nursery. A small number of trees from each clone are maintained as stock trees in 20 litre air pots.
The collection represents a critical resource for native aspen conservation, representing as it does in the region of 20-30% of the entire species gene pool for this geographical area.
Eadha is using this clone bank to develop field trials to test the clones in a range of applications. We also welcome academics and researchers to access the collection and to take samples. Further information on research and trials.
