Take the B4EST tree breeding survey!

The B4EST project has launched a European survey on adaptive tree breeding, open to people working in the forest sector such as forest managers and owners, tree breeders, and representatives of forest associations and industry.

B4EST is an EU Horizon 2020 project which has a focus on fostering productive, sustainable and resilient forests under climate change. The survey aims to identify a realistic picture of the experiences and expectations of different groups in the forest sector towards adaptive tree breeding and the usage and uptake of improved forest reproductive material (FRM). FRM is used in regeneration and afforestation, and refers to all parts of a tree that can be used for reproduction, for example fruits, seeds and cones. Improved FRM provides specific benefits, for example better resilience to climate conditions, pests and diseases.

By taking the survey, you will have the opportunity to influence future FRM developments, and inform policy makers. It takes about 15 minutes to answer the questions, and you can choose whether to answer anonymously or leave contact details if you wish to receive an executive summary of the key findings.

The deadline for answering the survey is 10 March 2019.
