Description: This paper describes the first 14 cottonwood (Populus deltoides Bartr.) clones selected by a team of geneticists and silviculturists from the Southern Forest Experiment Station as part of a program for improving the species' performance in Midsouth plantations. Clones were chosen primarily on the basis of rapid early growth. Their performance in replicated test plantings. one of which has reached pulpwood size. indicates that they have high potential for commercial planting and as breeding material. Both selection procedures and available data on clone performance are presented in the paper.
