We’ve got a pretty extensive list of questions and answers about our partnership, the research program, treatments and outcomes. But if you can’t find what you’re looking for in the categories below, please ask your question. We want to make sure New Brunswickers have complete access to all information about this research project.
If you didn’t find what you were looking for, ask us your questions about spruce budworm and we’ll post the responses here, or let you know if the answer already exists.
