The German forest tree breeding concept — the base for new seed orchards
Climate change is one of the key challenges of the 21st century. The environmentally friendly, CO2-saving and resource-saving raw material wood is of particular importance in efforts to counteract the undesirable consequences of this development. With the search for CO2-neutral energy resources and rising energy prices, the demand for wood is steadily increasing. However, the demand for wood is increasing not only in the energy sector (heating sector, power generation, biofuels), but also in the material-mechanical and chemical sectors, high growth rates are forecast. Forest tree breeding can contribute to the solution.
