Description: Black cherry (Prunus serotina Ehrh.) seedling seed orchards are now being established on the Allegheny and Monongahela National Forests (Fig. 1). It has been estimated that ten to twenty years may be required from the time that a seed orchard is established until it begins to produce large quantities of seed. Therefore, anything that could be done to reduce this time and enhance the growth of the orchard trees would have substantial economic benefits, and would hasten the availability of genetically-improved seed.
