Lux Davis began her 31 year career in forestry in 1985 with Champion International at the nursery in Livingston, Texas, where she worked in the fields both lifting and then planting. She moved on to Product Development where she filled the roll as a business specialist as well as working in the field doing breeding orchard pollination, seed extraction and progeny test planting. She continued at the Livingston location through the acquisition by International Paper and then ArborGen in 2007.
Although actual nursery operations ended in Livingston in 2010, the location remains a distribution and sales location. Lux currently functions as both business specialist and seedling sales representative.
