Special Issue "Culture, Plant Health, and Genetics of Christmas Trees in Changing Climate"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2022 | Viewed by 2323
Interests: tree physiology; Christmas tree production and management
Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Interests: seedling quality and establishment for Christmas tree production and forestry
Christmas trees are an important tree crop in much of North America and Europe. Production of high-quality trees requires careful management of cultural inputs such as irrigation, fertilization, and pest management, as well as selection of superior genotypes. In addition, the ecological and environmental aspects of Christmas tree production are receiving heightened attention due to the increased impacts of extreme weather events and other climate-related phenomena. Moreover, the post-harvest quality of trees and marketing are critical areas for research and outreach activities. In this Special Issue, we seek contributions on leading research on all areas of Christmas tree culture, genetics, physiology, management, ecology, and marketing. We anticipate most submission will be based on papers presented at the 15th International Christmas Tree Research and Extension Conference, but we welcome other submissions as well.
