Seed Program

Our Goal

In the long term our goal is to foster understanding of native plant seeds and encourage native seed conservation and research. This will help seed-based restoration of degraded forests.

Advance national and international collaboration to develop schemes and standards for seed collection, testing and storing for native tree and shrub species.

Identify ‘plus trees’. Plus trees are trees who have interesting or desirable morphological and physiological qualities.
