Abstract: Six clones and three control pollinated (CP) seedlots were compared for diameter and stiffness variability, the data coming from operational plantings in four Hawke’s Bay forests. Analyses show that diameter variability for clones is significantly less (between 9% and 16%) than for CP seed-lots. In contrast, there was no significant difference for variability between clones and CP families for modulus of elasticity. (no keywords)
