History of Tuttle Forestry Research Area

The Tuttle Forestry Research Area was leased by the Department of Horticulture and Natural Resources from the Army Corp of Engineers in 1964. The site was formerly used by the US Fish and Wildlife Service as an aquaculture station. The oldest plantation contains black walnut (Juglans nigra), and northern red oak (Quercus rubra), planted in 1967.
