Cone and Seed Yields From F1 Crosses Involving Five and Six Year Old Open and Controlled-Pollinated Seedlings of Loblolly Pines

To determine if and how a particular characteristic is inherited, the forest geneticist must select and breed for a particular characteristic. The ultimate goal will be to incorporate desired characteristics, whatever they may be, into a particular genetic strain. By selection and controlled pollination, it should be possible to reduce "flowering" age considerably. This will save valuable years in tree improvement program as well as insuring early seed production in a grafted or a controlled-pollinated seedling seed orchard.
