Collaboration and knowledge-sharing

Tolerant Tree (full project name: Genetics and management for stress tolerant trees for the future climate) is a project that supports collaboration and knowledge-sharing between forest geneticists, pathologists and entomologists across the Nordic countries. We are a SNS Nordic Forest Research network.
