2012 Collection Campaign

We are well underway with our 2012 collection campaign.  To process the cones and seeds we have been graciously sent by many seed orchards and arboretums, the project has welcomed myself, Ashley Clingen, back for the fall. We have already recieved shipments from:

University of Guelph Arboretum
Chihuahuan Desert Nature Center
University of Wisconsin at Madison Arboretum
Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University
Dorena Genetic Resource Center
Beaver Creek Seed Orchard on the Siuslaw National Forest
Western Forest Products – Saanich Forestry Centre
Mount Newton Seed Orchard
Kalamalka Forestry Centre

We also have many shipments coming in soon from:

Longwood Gardens
Houston Arboretum and Nature Center
Wilbur D. May Arboretum
New York Botanical Garden
North Carolina Botanical Gardens
Holden Arboretum
University of California at Davis Arboretum
Quarryhill Botanical Gardens
Crosby Arboretum
USDA-NRCS Bridger Plant Materials Center
British Columbia Forest Service Tree Seed Centre
Yellowpoint Propagation

Several other arboretums are working to determine whether their accessions are suitable for sampling for our project or whether or not staff will be allocated to the sampling effort.  We thank these seed and cone sources for their support!
