Description The Wild service tree (Torminalis glaberrima) is discussed as interesting species to be planted in Dutch forest, because it is known to be drought resistant. Yet, also other factors are relevant to select for this species to be introduced into Dutch forests. What about resistance to late frost and growth potential? In several provenance trials, survival and growth can be monitored to answer these questions.
