Renewed economic and ecological interest, coupled with its wide adaptability and range in genetic diversity, makes shortleaf pine (Pinus echinata) an excellent candidate for continued tree improvement work. If range-wide restoration efforts of shortleaf pine are to be successful, tree improvement work by both state and federal agencies must continue.
