Traditional tree breeding programs have captured impressive gains for many species all over the world. These long-term endeavours are resource-dependent, require organizational commitment and cover vast geographic territories. Until now, the classic recurrent selection scheme, with its repetitive cycles of selection, breeding, and testing, has been the scheme of choice. Selection of parental candidates is often conducted in natural stands and/or plantations. Breeding involves the development of a structured pedigree produced from crosses among the selected parents following established mating designs. The breeding cycle is completed by testing and evaluation. This process identifies the elite individuals which are then introduced to seed orchards for mass production of genetically improved seed for reforestation. While successful, this current scheme is static and not responsive to market or climate changes. The availability of relatively affordable genomic information for “non-model” species such as trees, with their known large and complex genomes, allows the creation of innovative developments that eliminate most of the traditional recurrent selection steps, thus making breeding more responsive and nimble. Such novel developments include the use of genomic-based assembled pedigree evaluation, the blended single-step evaluation, and the development of revolutionary genomic selection methods that predict mature phenotypes performance at an early age through the use of their genotypes. This genomic revolution has significant ramification as the model unit of quantitative genetics has shifted from being the line of descent to the allele, thus creating a paradigm shift requiring drastic reevaluation of past and current practices. However, these exciting developments have their own pitfalls that require relentless evaluation.
