Keeping our forests resources resilient and healthy
The forestry sector is facing several significant challenges, such as climate change, globalization, demographics, and wood supply. Some of these are global while others are specific to BC. Through genomics research, forestry companies and regulators have partnered with BC’s globally renowned scientists to lead the world in sustainable productivity.
The progress made to date in forest genomics discovery, applications and translation is revealing the tools and opportunities in BC to not just survive the ongoing transformation of the forest industry but contribute to its competitiveness and sustainability.
