Woody species seed banking subcommittee meeting

November 18 @ 11:30 am - 2:00 pm

Join us to get the ball rolling on thinking through the details of woody species seed collection. Below is an outline of what I think the lingering questions are. If these issues seem important to you please consider joining us!

Here’s what I think we need to know/discuss:

  • What is the outlook for seed demand over the next 1 year/5 years?

    • Measure in number of plants/species?

    • How much seed would it take to produce that number of plants?

  • What businesses/organizations/entities are contributing to that demand?

  • Is there an efficient way to centralize the seed collection to meet most of the local demand?

    • Is this desirable for all/most parties?

    • How would this be funded?

  • Who would do the actual scouting/collection?

    • How much labor would it require?

    • Any opportunity for, or interest in, volunteer events?

    • Understory may be interested in this, or we could hire a separate contractor.

  • Where would seed be stored?

  • Who would use the seed?

    • How would the seed be divided and distributed?
