Developing Loblolly Pine Varietals for East Texas and Louisiana

Recent results from genetic trials in east Texas identified high-performing Varietals for the southeast Texas region. AGV127 is one such Varietal from the eastern range of Loblolly Pine that has now been tested in the Jasper, Texas, region with excellent growth and stem quality, and already widely tested from South Carolina to Mississippi. The identification […]

The trees are over 25 feet tall with a dbh of five inches.  With this increase in growth because of ArborGen’s advanced genetics, Mr. Hall expects to thin the stand […]

ArborGen Breakthrough in Rust Resistance with Genomics

Fusiform rust caused by Cronartium quercuum (Berk.) Miyabe ex Shirai f.sp. fusiforme is an economically significant disease causing more than $20 million dollars in damage to plantations of Loblolly Pine (Pinus taeda, L.) each year (Cubbage et al., 2000). It is perhaps the most important disease to consider when making a decision of what type […]

ArborGen Mass Control Pollinated (MCP®) seedlings are the result of more than 50 years of forest genetics research and the screening of more than 5,000 parent trees of Loblolly Pine. From these 5,000 parents, ArborGen uses only the top 30 crosses among the best of these families, or the top one percent. MCP Elite parents are carefully […]

Higher genetic seedlings have proved their value, and forest landowners are moving rapidly toward a new […]
