Securing our Future Forests by Enhancing Technology, Capacity, and Speed

The TGI5 is a North American effort to accelerate the use of stress adapted trees. It is comprised of over 60 Consortium members in the US and Canada with expertise in forest biotechnology, tree breeding,
sustainable forest management, and production forestry. The TGI fosters communication among partner organizations and outside stakeholders. It includes all points along the research-stewardship
chain. Its goal is to help enable on-the-ground changes by identifying current efforts, needs, and obstacles to using stress-adapted trees.
