Analysis of Genetic Variation for Height Growth and Survival in Open-Pollinated Progenies of Eastern White Pine

Open-pollinated progenies of eighteen clones, from two seed years (1971 and 1973) in the University of New Hampshire eastern white pine (Pinus strobus L.) clone bank, were measured for height growth and survival after three growing seasons in the nursery. Family variation, for both traits, was significant each year and heritability estimates were moderately high, being much larger in 1973 than 1971.
