- · Plantationforestry, based on successful breeding of superior tree genotypes, is becoming more widely used by international forestry companies, since it offers the possibility to grow and manage forests of high economic value and superior quality.
- · However, a number of highly desirable traits are not readily available in the breeding population and may be introduced using desirable genes from other organisms.
- · Forest molecular biology, and in particular tree genetic engineering is now at a stage where the technologies are readily available to transfer specific traits of commercial and scientific interest into forest trees.
