Tree breeding and forest products

There was a good turn out to Forest Research’s seminar on Wednesday 17th February.  Speakers covered a range of topics related to tree breeding and diversification of forestry.

Copies of presentations may go online (certainly ours will) and we’ll post them here when available.

[Edit 3 March 2016] slides for our presentation are here.

For now, here are the web links supporting the content of presentations
