Chapter 13 - Pitch, Pond, Sand, Spruce, Table-Mountain, and Virginia Pines

Some of the minor pine species make locally important contributions to forestry, although they lack the total volume of the four major species. Seed orchards have been established with pond, sand, and Virginia pines with the hope of attaining benefits similar to those for major species. Information available is limited largely to estimates of phenotypic variation, usually as a part of studies designed for other purposes. However, it probably would be unwise for foresters, geneticists, and tree breeders to assume that no inherent variation exists among trees merely because it has not been studied.
