Eddy. The Institute is characterized by its seven contributing vernacular frame buildings and two contributing rubble-stone buildings spatially. The Institute of Forest Genetics consists of 16 structures, a research nursery and an arboretum on acres of land. Only 73 acres of this facility are considered part of the National Register of Historic Places. The facility and land has been owned by the U.S. Forest Service since The purpose of the facility is the same as when it was founded in by James G. Eddy for which the. In , the Eddy Tree Breeding Station, later known as the Institute of Forest Genetics, was organized at Placerville, California, and started work on the genetics of pines. The first task was to accumulate as many species of pines as was physically possible, so that the genetic potential or variability within this genus could be fully.

In , he established a tree breeding station located at Placerville, California. Lloyd Austin was hired as the first director of the Eddy Tree Breeding Station (now known as the Institute of Forest Genetics), and quickly set about establishing an extensive arboretum of conifers.
