Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Forest tree breeding programs started only a few decades ago with two main aims: to guarantee the genetic origin of the forest reproductive material used in reforestation and to improve tree characteristics. Further criteria have recently been added—notably, adaptation to abiotic and biotic factors in response to new socioeconomic needs and global changes. A decade after the first forest tree genome sequence was released, the rapidly evolving genomics and bioinformatics toolbox has advanced our understanding of tree genomes. The potential impact of these technologies is considered major for adapting forests to the changing demand from ecosystem services in terms of conservation and use, as well as climate change.
The present Special Issue in the journal Forests (ISSN 1999-4907, https://www.mdpi.com/journal/forests), entitled "New Advances in Tree (Epi)Genomics and Implications for Breeding and Management" encourages the submission of research as well as review papers dealing with new advances in tree genomics and epigenomics that could be related to new perspectives in tree breeding and management.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Forests is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
