N.S. project uses genomes as blueprint for more resilient, valuable trees

A Nova Scotia project working to develop the most resilient forests is rooting their methods in the family tree.

The Genome Atlantic, a non-profit organization, recently received $315,500 over four years to work with the Atlantic Tree Improvement Council to plant faster-growing trees that are more resistant to disease.

The new funding comes out of the Forestry Innovation Transition Trust, which also announced two other projects alongside Genome Atlantic earlier this month.
