The Project Support Programme forms a major part of DFSC's training and extension activities. The majority of training courses take place via direct support to tree seed projects. In turn this provides vital feed-back and insight into challenges met by tree seed programmes as well as ways to overcome these challenges.

Most of these projects are Danida-supported national tree seed programmes. Tree seed programmes financed by other organisations or forestry programmes financed by Danida may also receive technical support from DFSC. Technical support is currently being given to projects in Burkina Faso, Cambodia, Central America, Indonesia, Laos, Nepal, Thailand, Uganda and Vietnam.
