Description The project aims to establish half-sib progeny tests of selected mother trees of the identified priority forest tree species; determine heritability of phenotypic traits observed from selected parent trees like bole straightness, diameter, height, etc.; identify and recommend a list of the best performing parent trees tested; and convert best families into seedling seed orchards. It aims to establish breeding populations as seed sources; recommend the best performing mother tree; and determine the heritability of important characteristics of selected mother trees.
