THE WASHINGTON INSTITUTE OF DENDROLOGY RESEARCH

THE FOREST PATHOLOGY RESEARCH CENTER RESEARCH PROJECTS

The Washingtion Institute of Dendrology Research is a scientic and educational non-profit corporation based in Washington State. Our primary goal is to build a world class pathology research facility and to provide funding for this research facility ro perform critical tree pathology research into the causes, control, prevention, and the eventual elimination of some of the diseases that affect the trees of our forest lands, shade trees and our fruit and nut trees.
Our mission is to provide forest pathology and entomology funding for critical pathology research into the causes, control, prevention, and the eventual elimination and where necessary, complete eradication of some of the inported or invasive diseases that harm the trees of our forest lands, shade trees, and our crop trees.
In addition The Washingtion Institute of Dendrology Research will work to find effective natural means to control the many insects that harm the trees of our forests, shade trees, and our crop trees.
It is important to restore the natural order by removing these invasive diseases and insect problems which were brought into these various environments and caused great problems for our trees. In this process, we must help to restore the natural order so that the forest can work properly.
The pathology research work and the results of the funds provided will also be applied to the trees everywhere well beyond the Pacific Northwest forests, parks, homes, businesses, and farmlands.

Departments

We are presently searching for additional important projects, so if you know of any, let us know. We need to find them, because a lot of important work has yet to begin.

Trees are one of the Earth's renewable resources. If you appreciate the natural beauty of our forests, the grandeur and magnificence of old growth forests, and the strength and durability of wood, you can help our forests to overcome the many diseases and insects that affect their health and help to establish healthy forests for will provide for future generation's natural resource needs.
Support the Washingtion Institute of Dendrology Research. We need your help.

ONE QUESTION: If our cars, trucks, ships, airplanes, and other machinery cause Global Warming, because they put a massive amount of carbon dioxide into the the atmosphere, who is pushing to begin a massive program to plant TREES everywhere.
Trees need carbon dioxide to live, and they use and remove a lot of carbon dioxide from atmosphere.
