Please note: This is a Sole Source Notification. The Michigan Department of Natural Resource (DNR), Forest Resources Division and the Michigan State University (MSU), Department of Forestry have an established 50-year partnership in the Michigan Cooperative Tree Improvement Program (MICHCOTIP). MICHCOTIP focuses on both improved genetics for red and jack pine growth and yield and resistance breeding for restoration of tree species (including those in the ash family) that have been impacted by non-native insects and diseases. The organization functions as the means to collaborate on forest genetics and tree improvement as well as implement activities that produce genetically superior seed and planting stock for the 6-7 million trees per year DNR tree planting program. The program does this through establishment and management of progeny test plantings at both the DNR Brighton Tree Improvement Center, other DNR tree nursery lands, and MSU-owned properties for the purposes of identifying lines of genetically superior trees, and for establishing and managing seed orchards of genetically improved trees to produce seed for the DNR tree planting program. Other agencies and private companies have previously been members of the cooperative, but DNR- FRD and MSU are the sole contributor partners at the present time. The MSU employee who currently serves as the director of MICHCOTIP is preparing to retire and a successor director is needed. It is the mutual desire of MSU and DNR that the successor director be a PhD faculty position with specialization in the field of forest genetics.
