Dedicated in 1979, the Forestry Sciences Laboratory houses scientists
who are carrying on a heritage of research first begun in Fresno
about 1934. Located on a 10 acre site on the north campus of California
State University at Fresno, this 7000 square foot structure houses
a complex of offices, research laboratories, and computer facilities.
Laboratory studies include chemical analyses of soil and plant nutrients.
Most research centered at this laboratory, however, is done at
field locations in the Sierra Nevada and at the San Joaquin Experimental
Range -- about 4500 acres of oak-pine woodlands, located 28 miles
north of Fresno, near O'Neals, in Madera County. The Experimental
Range is managed cooperatively by California State University at
Sierra Nevada Research Center
The Fresno Forestry Sciences Laboratory
in Fresno, California, is a field research facility of the
Pacific Southwest Research Station, headquartered in
Albany, California. The laboratory and research station are part of the
Forest Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture.
