Initiation of a program to conserve forest genetic resources in Canada is proposed. The proposal is the fruit of many discussions and two workshops involving representatives from provincial governments and other federal government departments. The program, as envisioned, would be cooperative and collaborative, building on the strengths of those provinces that have already undertaken such work, and extending the work across provincial boundaries, and across departmental mandates.
