    Description

    The distance the pollen of forest trees travels is of practical and theoretical importance not only in tree breeding, but also in silviculture. For example, one way to produce elite or hybrid tree seed where vegetative propagation is impractical is by the establishment of "seed orchards" or natural-crossing plots. The success of such orchards will depend partly on the pollination habits of the clones used.
