Abstract

The domestication of forest trees is underway, as evidenced by the increased use of genetic and cultural improvement methods. This paper reviews our knowledge of tree growth control in terms of one major unresolved problem: regulation of the growth-dormancy cycle in mature trees. The author describes new applications of growth control.
