This publication of the regional research project NE-27, Genetics and Improvement of Northeastern Trees, is intended to provide an overview of current knowledge regarding genetic variation and tree improvement practices for eleven common tree species in the Northeast. The authors have attempted to summarize the information that will be most useful to forest managers, administrators, and field foresters in this region. Our intent is to be informative, not exhaustive.
