Southeastern U.S. Tree Improvement Tour

In November 2000, ten people affiliated with the Forest Genetics Council of B.C. joined members of the North West Tree Improvement Co-op (NWTIC) from Washington and Oregon, and the Director of the Inland Empire Tree Improvement Co-op (IETIC), on a tour of industrial forest land and tree improvement facilities in Georgia, USA.

The group visited seed orchards, operational plantations, progeny tests, nurseries, and various research trials. Participants also attended the annual meeting of the Cooperative Forest Genetic Research Program (CFGRP-University of Florida based tree improvement co-op), where seven North American tree improvement co-ops were represented.
