Building a sustainable plantation forestry with productive conifers
Conifers have large economic, ecological and societal values. However seeds are visibly running short in the context of climate change, which is already challenging the traditional seed-based plantation forestry with improved varieties to produce wood. Complementary strategies must be introduced to propagate trees efficiently.
Our intentions are to:
Increase transparency between public and forest science knowledge and benefits
Present traditional breeding as well as planting strategies and technologies in forestry
Introduce a complementing system based on biotechnological possibilities, multi-varietal forestry, to provide enough plant material for future woods together with addressing the rising problem of seed shortage
Offer access to current scientific research
