CivTech 4 - C11 - How we use technology to make better use of Scotland’s valuable supply tree seed?

There is a very clear and urgent need for more trees to be planted in Scotland. This demand is well understood by the Scottish Government and is articulated in both the recently published Forestry Strategy for Scotland and the Climate Change action plan. Scotland was also the first country in the world to declare a climate emergency, and planting more trees is vital if we are to tackle that emergency head on. However, the urgent need to do so much and so quickly in order to respond to this emergency means that existing processes and supplies of high quality tree seed are under significant strain.

We need to find new ways of approaching the problem, that don’t use more manual labour and ideally less, and that make more efficient use of the supplies of seed that we have. How might we use technology to make better use of Scotland’s valuable but limited tree seed supply?

Tender submission deadline: 21/08/2019
