the department for all of the following purposes:

species.
   (d) Propagation and distribution of tree seedlings of the species
Taxus brevifolia (Pacific yew) for research related to taxol in the

forest seedlings or native plants for the purposes of reforestation
or soil erosion control at the end of each season's sales as are, in
his determination, surplus, to private persons or nonprofit

property. Any person or nonprofit organization requesting such
surplus forest seedlings or native plants shall provide such
information as the director determines is necessary to insure that
the forest seedlings or native plants will be planted on public
property and that they are sufficiently compatible with the proposed
planting area to have a reasonable chance for survival.



4685.  The Governor, on behalf of the state, may receive all
conveyances or donations of real or personal property necessary to
