Boreal Forest Plant and Seed Technology Access Centre

We provide scientific findings, practical methods, technologies and services to advance the capacity of industry to use native plants to lessen the environmental footprint in the boreal forest. Our goal is to address present and emerging knowledge gaps in seed collection, treatment, propagation and deployment on disturbed sites.

The Boreal Forest Plant and Seed Technology Access Centre team works out of our Peace River research facilities and is part of the Centre for Boreal Research, which is an Approved Seed Testing Facility.
