The primary purpose of this Project was the production of superior tree seed through a regional genetics and tree improvement program.

Initial objectives included completion of the necessary seed and wood collections, development of the required progeny sites and bring the Seed Orchard to operational status.

The majority of the development took place over the period 1998 to 2001 inclusive. The results of this work are summarized in four separate reports: Region "G2" White Spruce Clonal Seed Orchard; Region "J" Lodgepole Pine Clonal Seed Orchard; and White Spruce Provenance and Family Trials in the Clearwater & Mackenzie Forest Areas of Alberta.
