NordGen’s Forest Regeneration Council at their Spring meeting in Iceland 2018.

The NordGen Forest Regeneration Council is one of NordGen’s expert networks and has an important role in the continuity of the work of NordGen. The Council seeks to increase the availability of suitable forest reproductive material through communication activities and to promote successful forest regeneration in the Nordic countries.

The Forest Regeneration Council consists of two members from each Nordic country and meets twice a year. The chairmanship lasts for four years and circulates between the countries. The Council contributes with its knowledge and takes an active part in NordGen Forest’s conferences and other events concerning the availability of forest plants, rejuvenation methods, genetic resources and breeding.

The Forest Regeneration Council is working to:

  • Initiate and develop Nordic co-operation
  • Collect and disseminate information to both industry professionals and the general public
  • Contribute to skills enhancement through conferences and thematic days
  • Initiate and follow Nordic research and development
  • Discuss relevant international issues and coordinate Nordic approaches if necessary
