Trees Ontario is hosting five free seed forecasting workshops this June

Learn about improving seed collection efficiency and restoring inventories across Ontario

TORONTO, ON, May 21, 2013 – This June Trees Ontario and its local partners are conducting five free tree seed forecasting workshops across the province to help improve seed collection efficiency and restore tree seed inventories across Ontario. This workshop is intended for individuals with a strong interest and prior experience in tree seed collection and forecasting.

During the workshop, attendees will learn about flower morphology, seed production, ideal weather conditions for seed development and release and seed crop progression.

Collecting seeds, tracking their growth and compiling information about seed availability, location, type and quantity are all important components in further building Ontario’s tree planting infrastructure. These are also vital steps in achieving long-term planning success.

A light lunch and refreshments will be provided. Registration is highly recommended as space is limited.
