Abstract: This paper is a review of authors'research results on genetic improvement of pulp wood of masson pine. At fist the breeding objectives for pulp production of masson pine are defined,then the genetic variation,genetics,genetic correlation and stability of wood yield,wood quality and paper/pulp-making properties are discussed systematically,the optimum provenance zones and seed sources for pulp wood through comprehensive evaluation on wood yield,wood quality and paper/pulp-making properties were determined,finally a lot of families and individuals with high growth rate and good wood quality were selected.The selection strategy and future research emphasis of pulp wood breeding of masson pine is also discussed.
