Abstract:

In 16- or 17-year-old eastern white pine plantations in Iowa and Ohio, 5- to 8-fold differences in volume growth were related to geographic origin of the seed. Relative performance has remained consistent for several years; the provenances with the tallest trees at age 5 tend to be the same as those with the greatest volume-per-acre production at age 16 or 17. Forest Sci. 25:2-6.
