TL;DR: Nine full-sib families of loblolly pine produced by a 3 × 3 factorial mating design showed that individual-tree and family heritability estimates from rooted cuttings were similar to or higher than those from seedlings for all traits, which suggests that wood density and height breeding value estimates can be estimated by traditional seedling tests, but not for tree diameter.
