HTIRC is a collaborative national research, development and technology transfer center for hardwood stewardship.
Dr. Anthony Davis’ interest in forestry and environmental conservation began in his home province of New Brunswick where he received a B.S. in Forestry at the University of New Brunswick. He received his M.S. and Ph.D. in Forestry at Purdue University. Anthony was named Purdue’s first van Eck graduate scholar.
HTIRC researchers are working to advance the science of hardwood tree quality, growth, and insect and disease resistance.
On a hot, dusty day some two thousand years ago, a traveler stops on the road from Dunhuang, China, to Marakanda (now Samarkand) in Central Asia. He drinks deeply from his flask, then reaches into his sling, pulls out a walnut, cracks it on a rock and pops the kernel into his mouth. He savors the taste, cinches up his heavy packs and walks on.
Mark your calendar for the meeting to be held in Lafayette, Indiana from June 13-15, 2017.
The meeting will be hosted by the USDA Forest Service and the Hardwood Tree Improvement and Regeneration Center at Purdue University. It includes 2 days of invited presentations on the latest updates and research about Thousand Cankers Disease.
Registration will begin in March 2017. If you have further questions, please contact Liz Jackson at email@example.com.
