Project objectives

Provide recommendations for assisted gene flow and assisted species migration for Douglas-fir, lodgepole pine, western larch and jack pine.  These recommendations will be informed by regeneration risks in response to climate change, opportunities for increased growth in future climates, and levels of acceptance and risk perceptions of various stakeholders and end users.
Deliver genomic tools and strategies for breeding Douglas-fir and lodgepole pine that can thrive in future climates and are resistant to pathogens.
Develop translational strategies tailored to specific forestry contexts to advance forest management adaptation.
