Abstract: The Specialty Wood Products Research Partnership (SWP), which is in its third year, has a strong focus on the genetic improvement of Douglas-fir. The background of Douglas-fir in New Zealand and elsewhere, and achievements of the current genetic research programme targeting high-value wood production, with an initiation of genomic selection into the breeding programme is discussed.
