Western Gulf Forest Tree Improvement Program gene conservation plan for loblolly pine



Western Gulf Forest Tree Improvement Program gene conservation plan for loblolly pine



Forest Genetic Resources ( 27): 55-59



The Western Gulf Forest Tree Improvement Program (WGFTIP) is a cooperative tree breeding project founded in 1969 with the objective of providing the best genetic quality seed for use in forest regeneration programmes in the Western Gulf Region of the USA. This paper focuses on WGFTIP's work with the conservation of loblolly pine (Pinus taeda). Background information is provided on the geographical distribution of loblolly pine in the USA (a map is included) and its genetic variation.
