Tree Seed Working Group

The Canadian Forest Genetics Association (CFGA) has a Tree Seed Working Group (TSWG) that has been active since 1983. The group publishes a Newsbulletin biannually on a selected theme and hosts a Tree Seed Workshop at the biennial CFGA meeting. Currently about 300 people receive the Newsbulletin. Members are mainly from Canada, but the US, Europe and a handful of other countries are also represented. The TSWG has four objectives on promoting tree seed science and technology through:

  • Seed research from bud initiation to seed utilization;
  • Identification of seed problems relating to tree improvement and forest management;
  • Exchange of information on seed related problems
  • Advising on implementation practices

The strength of the TSWG lies in its members (and their contacts) that span the gamut from pure academics, to seed producers, collectors, processors and those that use seed in producing our reforestation materials. If you are interested in receiving the Newsbulletin, contributing an article or participating in other ways you can contact Dale Simpson (editor of Newsbulletin) or myself for more information.
