SCFC GENETIC BEST LOBLOLLY PINE

(Columbia, SC) In a limited offering, loblolly seedlings from the Forestry Commission’s two best genetic families are now available for purchase.

Called “Neiderhof’s Best”, these trees derive from the single best Coastal and Piedmont loblolly families in the Commission’s tree improvement program. Only fifty thousand seedlings from each of these two exclusive families are available.

Commission nurserymen say these two families are the best overall performers in their orchard system. In outplanting trials, these trees are expected to perform significantly better than seedlings from bulk seed lots.

Forestry professionals desiring more information on Neiderhof’s Best seedlings may call 1-803-275-3578.
