· Article about the Västerhus seed orchard by Fries et al 2008
· Noteringar om Dag Lindgrens farfar (paternal grandfather), who was born close to Västerhus and so his ancestors tracking four generations back!..
· A thinning and pruning trial at Västerhus (some year old plan)
· Populär artikel om fröplantager notera att Västerhus är vinjettbild!

Ola Rosvall left his position at Skogforsk (but keep on with much of what he has done) at end of 2011. As a gift he got signatures on a board made from a surplus tree of his dedicated clone from Västerhus. So we keep some link with the past here! He is now consultant.
Much of the work with pines in Västerhus was done with a Japanese postdoc, Takeshi Torimaru, who left Umeå at end of Mars 2009, but made a short revisit. He was rewarded “Dag Lindgrens award for talented forest geneticists” (20 000 SEK) at 130930 and will receive the award 121206. One reason was to mark the inauguration of the “Dag Lindgren” seed orchard which is genetically connected to Västerhus and may partly replace it.
