  • "MCP (full-sib) families from the best second-generation parents can produce more than 50 percent volume gains. When you add in the improvements in stem form and disease resistance, stand value improvements may be twice the volume improvement."

  • “We have established test plantings using MCP and Varietal seedlings after visiting some impressive SuperTree Seedlings® test plantings at five years. Both seem to be performing well at the three-year mark. Since the Ross Foundation utilizes the proceeds from its forestry work to fund its philanthropic program, we are always looking for ways to improve the value of this land that ultimately gives back to the community around us.”

  • “MCPs are really the bulk of our business – especially since ArborGen has made them a real option in the last few years. MCPs work great on those sites that are not what I call “super sites” but are above average, and that’s typically about 50% of all sites. They are a great value for what you’re getting in horsepower and growth potential. They come from the best families and they’re a good bang for the buck.”

  • If a landowner wants to maximize net revenue, SuperTree Seedlings® are the way to go.  These trees will be harvested in less time, with more volume and more sawtimber per acre.  They’re worth every penny!
