|Description||The Wild service tree (Sorbus torminalis) 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 frost resistance? Invasiveness? Availability of plant material?
An interesting subject to explore.
