Conserve Genetic Diversity In Your Forest

Conserving the genetic diversity of our existing forests starts with learning about the many local native species and the sites they are adapted to. Then if you want to harvest, start with a plan that involves getting professional advice, protecting the soils and regeneration, and conserving healthy trees of all native species.

Take Action

Conserving healthy trees is essential for trees that are under threat, such as butternut and ash. Conservation and recovery of any species is not possible if landowners don’t conserve the trees that are showing tolerance to the effects of insects and diseases.
