Title: Ten-year results of a ponderosa pine progeny test in the Black Hills

Author: Shepperd, Wayne D.; McElderry, Sue E.;

Date: 1986

Source: Western Journal of Applied Forestry. 1(3): 79-83.

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: Ten-year survival and growth of seedlings from 77 parent trees from throughout the Black Hills were compared, using a cluster-analysis technique. Five clusters were identified that account for most of the variability in survival and growth of the open-pollinated families. One cluster, containing 6 families, exhibited exceptional survival and growth. Another, containing 12 families, exhibited poor survival and growth. The performance of families in these two groups appears to be related to location and elevation of parent trees.

Keywords: ponderosa pine, progeny test, seedlings
