Seed orchards’ parental reproductive success is often assessed through surveys of seed- and pollen-cone production (reproductive investment). Although the reliability of this approach has been questioned, its speed and ease made it the method of choice for providing approximate estimates for the genetic quality and quantity of seed orchard crops. Experience last century showed that if seed was taken from a population adapted to a very different climate from the planting site, then there was a considerable risk that trees would be unhealthy and unproductive. As a result, current seed transfer policy in British Columbia restricts seed movement between collection and planting site locations.

Provincial government seed orchards have been around since They are advanced generation plantations of genetically superior trees, intensively managed to produce frequent, abundant, and easily harvested seed crops.

Surveys were conducted in a lodgepole pine seed orchard in British Columbia in and Clones were ranked based on the proportion of their ramets on which L. occidentalis was observed.

This compendium is provided for reference and is not the only source of relevant information that may be considered when making decisions about tree species feasibility and suitability. We specialize in providing viable custom grass seed mixes to suit the unique geography and environments of British Columbia.
Whether a client calls for a low growing turf grass mix in Victoria, a Ministry of Transportation mix for the East Kootenay region, or a high elevation native seed mix for Northern BC, we will provide a mix to suit their.
Seed orchards crops derive generally from a limited number of trees. But if it is a common wind-pollinated species much pollen will come from outside the seed orchard and widen the genetic diversity. The genetic gain of the first generation seed orchards is not great and the seed orchard progenies overlap with unimproved material.

e Vernon Seed Orchard Company, Vernon, BC. Seed collected from these orchards is registered in SPAR and made available to forest industry customers for use in their reforestation programs. The orchards are jointly owned by either PRT and Select Seed Company or PRT and the BC Ministry of Forests Lands and Natural Resource Operations.
Seed orchards are the most commonly used forest tree production populations in the world and, at the. same time, the most cost-efficient way to produce genetically improved seed for reforestation.

History. Almost all major groups of wild plants in British Columbia have edible members that are reported to have been used by the First Nations peoples. Many are still used today. Native plants of B.C. largely contributed to the diets of First Nations peoples of this area before these people and their land were colonized.
Seaweed. Seaweed has been an important plant for many First Nations. This protocol can be utilized in any generation’s seed orchard e.g. when seed supply exceeds demand, for mixing surpluses from multiple years, or if a given seed lot fails to meet minimum Ne requirements.
