From controlled pollinations in a New Lisbon, New Jersey, orchard of selected pitch (Pinus rigida) and loblolly (P. taeda) pines, 29 test plantings have been made in nine states. Results indicate that well-formed, rapid-growing, winter-hardy trees can be produced by careful selection of parents and screening of hybrids. Steps are being taken to provide material for mass plantings.
