    Description

    One of the major objectives of the tree-improvement program of the Central States Forest Experiment Station of the U.S. Forest Service is to select and breed hardwood trees that are inherently capable of producing wood of high quality. To begin this program we must select from natural stands and plantations the best possible parent trees. In recent years we have developed a method for identifying white oak trees (Quercus alba L.) that have the highest probability of being inherently superior stock for producing high-quality logs.
