Chico Forestry Station



In 1888, the State Board of Forestry established an experimental forestry station and nursery, a companion to the Santa Monica station established in 1887. The two were the first such stations in the nation. Exotic and native trees were tested and produced for scientific and conservation purposes. The station was operated by the Board of Forestry until 1893.
