NTIS brings all the various forestry sectors together so they fully understand the importance of genetics in trees and selection of the best planting stock to satisfy their individual organisational objectives. The NTIS wants to identify research problems and bring interested parties together to solve those problems with adequate funding. It also wants to make sure that as much as possible the improved planting stock is available to everybody, and it intends to communicate all this information as widely as it can across the sectors.
NTIS is a collaboration or mixture of many organisation, one glance down the list of Steering Group members will confirm that! It is through this collaboration with stakeholders across the forestry, ecology and academic sectors that NTIS aims to identify all the major research issues in tree improvement. Combining the collective knowledge, insight and experience of the many partners, we aim to produce an extensive research programme. This research programme, along with all other NTIS objectives relative to Governance, Funding, Intellectual Property and Communication are detailed in the Action Plan.
