The two photos shown below, depicting the Superior Nut Company Carbon-Offest Forest No. 5, were taken exactly 1 ½ years apart:  the first was taken October 2007; the second was taken on May 2009.  Lining the road are super-fast growing RTT Deglupta hybrids, planted to facilitate early harvest by felling into the road.  Farther to the right and left is a mixture of Klinkii, Deglupta and protected Mahogany, another RTT forest design on 14 acres.  The goal of the RTT applied research program is to design and manage improved sustainable carbon-offset forests for efficient carbon capture and farmer income.
