The mother tree, although only a part of the picture genetically, is of practical importance in seed collection. There is yet little evidence concerning the influence of the mother tree on seedling progeny of native forest-tree species. The author reports an initial test with black locust mother trees of varied growth rate and age. Results provide guidance on local collection of seed for nursery production of black locust seedlings.
