Valuable Trees:
What makes SuperTree Seedlings®trees more valuable?

Our trees grow fast and strong, maximize silvicultural efforts and produce better wood products.

SuperTree Seedlings are the product of over 60 years of meticulous genetic research, ensuring  the specific traits that ultimately yield better wood products on a consistent and predictable basis. Plant fewer trees per acre, maximize silvicultural efforts and take a higher volume of quality wood to market.

  • I highly recommend SuperTree Seedlings® Varietals for those superior sites that will give you the maximum return on investment and produce the most sawtimber possible. If you’re going with Varietals you’re going to have to do the necessary work to see that return – provide those seedlings with every opportunity to get the growth potential. You’ve got to be willing to put in the work with proper site management and silviculture to get your best results. In the end, the payoff will be worth the investment and the work.”

  • "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."

  • "The total volume gain of the SuperTree Seedlings® Varietals vs. the Open Pollinated in just five years has been remarkable. I’m amazed by it. And I’m very excited about their investment potential."

  • "The SuperTree Seedlings® Varietals I planted have been a great investment. I’ve been really pleased with their growth, and my plan is to plant more of them. As a forestry consultant, I also recommend them to my customers."

  • “At the Ross Foundation we strive to maintain healthy and productive forestlands that will be sustainable long into the future. That requires meeting the specific needs of each stand-level forest management objective. The staff at ArborGen works with us to understand our site-specific requirements to help us achieve specific goals.

  • “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.”

  • “We have been using Varietal seedlings for about 10 years now, and have about 2,000 acres planted in them. I can tell you that they are getting a noticeably good gain over the 2nd gen trees in height, diameter, straightness and limb quality. They are just better looking trees, and the key takeaway is realizing that the big return is going to be on getting more trees into the sawlog class. When you’re getting more product in the higher value – thinning more chipsaw than pulpwood at the first thinning and more sawlogs than chipsaw at the second thinning – harvesting more poles – that’s when Varietals really pay off. Straighter trees with less knots and forks are going to give you a higher return on your investment, and that’s what impresses me about Varietals. We’ve planted some every year for the last 10 years and I use them on my own personal property. I’m high on them myself.”

  • “The great thing about using SuperTree Seedlings® is that you have a full selection of quality seedlings to accomplish any type of long-term objective on any kind of site. If you’re looking for the “select filet” of seedlings for what we call a “super site” that’s going to give you the most sawtimber, they’ve got Varietals to get that job done. And they also have the best quality seedlings for every other type of site. If you’re not sure what type of tree to plant on what site, they have the expertise to guide you in making the best selection to get the maximum return on individual sites.”
