Tree Biosafety and Genomics Research Cooperative

The Tree Biosafety and Genomics Research Cooperative (TBGRC) conducts research and education on the use of genetic engineering methods to understand gene function, and to engineer trees that have new desirable traits and improved environmental values.

PNW Tree Improvement Research Cooperative

The purpose of the Pacific Northwest Tree Improvement Research Cooperative (PNWTIRC) is to conduct genetics and breeding research on Pacific Northwest tree species with the goal of providing priority information that will enhance the efficiency of tree improvement efforts. Emphasis is on region-wide problems dealing with major coniferous species. The PNWTIRC is concerned with both tree breeding and mass production of genetically improved materials. Another important objective of the Cooperative is to foster communication among tree improvement workers throughout the Pacific Northwest.

Northwest Tree Improvement Cooperative

The mission of the Northwest Tree Improvement Cooperative (NWTIC) is to assist and coordinate members in developing and managing their forest gene resources in the Pacific Northwest. Accordingly, NWTIC is committed to enhancing forest productivity by assisting members in developing genetically improved forest trees that yield more and better wood products and by promoting the development and sharing of technical information pertaining to applied forest genetics.

Hardwood Silviculture Cooperative

The Hardwood Silviculture Cooperative (HSC) conducts high priority silvicultural research on hardwood species and mixed hardwood/softwood stands in the Pacific Northwest, with the goal of providing information that will improve the management of these stands.
