French delegation at the University of Georgia [fr]
Did you know that 30% of Georgia’s forests are covered by a single tree species called Pinus taeda?
Last Monday November 13, 2017, a French delegation from Bordeaux (Nouvelle-Aquitaine) met with the University of Georgia’s Warnell School of Forestry & Natural Resources, in the presence of Valérie Trentesaux, Attaché for Science and Technology, as a part of their visit to Georgia and Florida. The purpose of the visit was to exchange with the Warnell School’s specialists about a possible production of Pinus taeda, commonly known as loblolly pine, in the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region in France.
Professor Bronson P. Bullock, Ph.D from the Warnell School of Forestry and the Bordelaise delegation indicated the possibility of a trip to the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region in 2018 to pursue this project.
