DescriptionPropagation of conifers by rooting of cuttings is an old art that has recently benefited by the findings of the plant physiologist. The forest tree breeder may now use rooting as a tool in his efforts to evaluate the heredity of his trees. In a study undertaken to use vegetative propagation of members of a variable hybrid population as a guide for selecting superior individuals, the authors found that wide differences occurred in rooting ability among members of the population, and that in general the differences corresponded in two successive years.
