Description: In 1984, a series of combined provenance/progeny tests was established by the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, Division of Forestry. Three plantings were established using a maximum of 70 open-pollinated families representing 17 natural stands (15 Indiana, 1 Illinois, and 1 Missouri). Height data were collected periodically through age 16. Early analyses (ages 3 and 5) showed demonstrable but statistically insignificant variation based on stand level means, while 10- to 25-percent increases in height could be realized by selecting at the family level and a 30-percent increase could be achieved by selecting the best individuals within families. Similar increases in height growth were noted for both the 10th- and 16th-year measurements. Potentially, a 42-percent increase in height growth could be obtained by selecting the best performing individuals from the best performing families at age 16.
