DescriptionNorthern white-cedar from 18 provenances was evaluated for total height in the nursery and for survival and total height in two field plantings in northern Wisconsin and in western Upper Michigan. There were significant differences among provenances in survival at one location and in height at both field locations 5 years after planting; there were no differences among provenances in height in the nursery. Total height was moderately, but significantly correlated between the plantings. The data suggest that there is significant genetic variation and genotype-environment interaction in northern white-cedar, but these traits may not be expressed when trees are grown under optimum conditions.
