UK National Tree Seed Project Seed Collecting Manual

July 2014


The UK National Tree Seed Project (UKNTSP) welcomes partners and volunteers to collect seed samples of nationally important trees and shrubs from across their UK range. This project will build a national ex situ collection of UK tree seed, maintained and managed by the Millennium Seed Bank (MSB). The collection will be genetically comprehensive and comprise sufficient seeds to support research and conservation, in order to meet the challenges facing UK forests. This guide has been compiled as information and advice for professional and volunteer foresters, arborists and conservationists collecting seeds for the UKNTSP.
