2023 Collection Guidelines

The American Public Gardens Association is partnering with the United States Forestry Service’s Forest Health Protection to establish living gene banks of US tree species at risk, by collecting plant material (seed, cuttings, as appropriate) from across its native range to capture broad genetic diversity then distributing propagules to public gardens for safeguarding in ex situ collections. The partnership began in 2015 and includes funds to support monitoring/scouting and collecting trips, propagation and distribution of propagules.
