Van Haverbeke, David F. 1986. Genetic variation in ponderosa pine: a 15-year test of provenances in the Great Plains. Res. Pap. RM-RP-265. Fort Collins, CO: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Rocky Mountain Forest and Range Experiment Station. 16 p.
Survival was highest and height growth greatest in ponderosa pine provenances from northcentral Nebraska, southwest South Dakota, and the High Plains region. Genotype x environment interaction was minimal in central and northern Great Plains plantations. Age/age correlations indicate provenances expressing superior height growth can be indentified after 5 t0 10 years.
