Woods Work: Seedlot Selection Tool

seedlot selection tool and output

The first event in our new Woods Work series is a short, hands-on workshop on the Seedlot Selection Tool (SST). The SST is designed to help forest managers choose the right seedlot for a planting site based on climatic information. This session will give you hands-on experience with the SST and a chance to learn from one of its developers what the SST can and cannot be used to achieve. You’ll leave with a stronger understanding of what SST outputs really mean, and how to apply them to your regeneration project. As assisted migration becomes a bigger part of normal forest operations, our ability to match tree species to the climatic conditions of planting sites will be critical. 

What to expect: This event is more of a workshop than a webinar. Be ready to engage in discussion, and to actively participate in using the SST during this event. Bring your current questions, and be ready to ask new ones!

Instructor: Brad St. Clair, U.S. Forest Service
