Introduction, Breeding, Propagation and Deployment of Pacific Northwest Conifers Around the World: 70 years of Progress, Opportunities and Challenges

Virtual meeting: instructions to connect are communicated upon registration.

We are pleased to offer a most cordial welcome to the first ever virtual meeting of IUFRO Working Group 2.02.05 on Pacific Northwest Conifers!
Yes, there has been much disruption since covid-19 made its appearance, but PNW Conifers have kept growing and providing many benefits in their area of origin and around the world! WG 2.02.05 has not met since Forest Genetics 2013 in Whistler, British Columbia, Canada.
By means of modern technology, you can join from wherever you are based without traveling, and share your recent genetics-related experiences and progress with these magnificent species!
