Marchel Tract

The Marchel Tract supports several hardwood studies. One study demonstrates how hybrid poplars can be rapidly grown for lumber, veneer, and paper pulp. An adjacent demonstration shows how hardwood species mixes, including the very fast growing paulonia trees, can produce a variety of forests products from wood to nuts to fertilizer to wildlife habitat. The 71-acre tract lies in the Willamette River floodplain and is not open to public use.
