The site was established in fall 2014 and is part of a eddy covariance flux tower network funded by DOE and USDA. It is also a part of the AmeriFlux network (US-Wpp). The hybrid poplar plantation is located in the Willamette Valley in Oregon on a property that is managed by the cities of Eugene and Springfield, OR.
