I am the fieldwork officer for the UK National Tree Seed Project based at the Millennium Seed Bank. The project aims to establish genetically representative seed collections of the UK’s woody flora as a resource to support UK trees and forests. My role is to co-ordinate seed collecting trips within the UK and work closely with the Project Officer to identify targets. Once targets are agreed, I set about selecting appropriate sites, liaising with landowners and executing fieldwork. Of huge importance is the continued collection of high-quality seed from fully verified individuals.
