About The Forest Genetics Council of British Columbia
Over 300 million trees are planted in British Columbia each year. This requires 1000s of kilograms of tree seed collected, registered and used in accordance with science-based standards so the seedlings planted adapted to their planting sites. The Forest Genetics Council of BC coordinates the production and use of tree seed so BC’s future forests remain healthy, resilient and productive.
FGC also owns Select Seed Company Ltd., which produces lodgepole pine, spruce and Douglas-fir seed for BC’s interior and provides program management services to Council.
