Firstly, it provides a summary of work accomplished to date in tree improvement and germplasm conservation in Haiti under the Agroforestry Outreach Project and the subsequent Agroforestry II project. Secondly, it provides a summary of the status of tree selection at the end of 1992 and outlines the work that needs to be done during the two remaining years of the Productive Land Use Systems Project (PLUS). Thirdly, it provides convincing evidence, with real data, of the benefits of tree selection, and, conversely, the risks involved in distributing seed of unknown genetic sources. For funding agencies and policy makers, this document provides ample justification for continued support of genetic conservation and improvement of trees in Haiti
