Excerpt: In Thailand, Pinus merkusii is found mainly in lower montane forest in the north at altitudes between 600 and 1 200 m and smaller stands are found in the lowland (70?170 m) in the southwest and eastern/northeast (DFSC 2000). The average precipitation at Khong Chiam district in northeast Thailand is 1 835 mm annually (Meteorological Department 1998). The pine yields important forest products such as timber, resin, tender wood, and produces a very good pulp (FAO/UNDP 1968). The lowland sources from northeast Thailand have a shorter and less pronounced grass-stage1 with faster early growth than highland provenances. The large variation among Thai provenances was confirmed by tests since 1971 under the Pine Improvement Programme in Chiang Mai. Soon, attention was drawn to sources from the northeast with a fast and early growth as a source for improvement work. Moreover, it was revealed that one of the most seriously threatened forest types was the mixed broad-leaved/pine type occurring in the south and southeast of northeast Thailand (Granhof 1998). Therefore, a P. merkusii stand in Khong Chiam forest area in northeast Thailand was chosen to establish an in situ gene conservation area. The objectives of the programme were divided into two parts. There were broad and narrow objectives. The broad objective was protection, maintenance and management of genetic resources of living tree species in their natural environment for present and future generations. The narrow objective was conservation of the pine stand for seed production, selection and possibly future breeding.
