Costs and benefits of a mature first-generation loblolly pine tree improvement program



Costs and benefits of a mature first-generation loblolly pine tree improvement program



Journal of Forestry 83(3): 162-166



A discussion of a series of trials (the North Carolina State University-Industry Cooperative Tree Improvement Program) in which the final first generation progeny tests were established in 1983. Gains from tree improvement in growth rate and quality traits such as wood density resistance to fusiform rust and stem straightness are briefly reviewed.
