For more than 25 years, Aracruz Celulose has been developing an intensive research program on Eucalyptus tree improvement, looking at the introduction, evaluation, selection, and recombination of superior trees (Bertolucci et al. 1999). Modern biotechnological tools are being introduced into classic genetic tree improvement programs and there is increased pressure for the definition of the most important forest attributes for each type of product. In 27th EUCEPA conference, Bertolucci et al. (1999) presented Aracruz’s research addressed at obtaining clones and varieties “engineered” to specific objectives, such as productivity and good quality attributes.
