Status and Outlook for Tree Improvement Programs in the Northeast
Abstract:Tree improvement programs have been undertaken by several governmental and industrial organizations in Maritime Canada and the New York-New England region of the United States. Target species vary according to local interests, but at least five are of general interest within these regions: white spruce, black spruce, jack pine, white pine, and the larches. This paper examines the current status of breeding programs for these species and prospects for future development. North. J. Appl. For. 2:127-131, Dec. 1985.
