The NCSU - Cooperative Tree Improvement Program continues to be a leader and innovator in tree improvement and forest genetics, building upon a history of over 50 years of research. We have amassed an enormous amount of genetic data on thousands of loblolly pine selections. Through decades of breeding efforts, and constantly looking for ways to incorporate new technologies, we have been able to make impressive gains in each generation of breeding.
Our membership base is wide, ranging from VIFPC, state agencies, TIMOs, REITs, and biotech companies. Please follow the links below for a more detailed overview of each category.
