The tenth and first installment of 2018 in the Eastern Seed Zone Forum's online lecture and discussion series aimed at providing both information about the creation of seed zones in general and a forum in which professionals, experts, and interested parties discuss the possibility of drafting seed zone guidelines for the eastern United States. In this webinar, Dr. Kevin M. Potter, Research Associate Professor, North Carolina State University, will discuss how provisional seed zones can be used as a tool for assessing forest conservation.
