The Southern Forest Tree Improvement Committee (SFTIC) is the de facto professional organization of tree improvement specialists throughout the southeastern United States. SFTIC has organized and directed tree improvement efforts and has sponsored many studies including the first quantification of geographic variation in the southern pines. The Southern Forest Tree Improvement Conference organized by SFTIC has met biannually for 56 years to exchange information and to discuss future needs.
