So a while back I found a playlist on youtube that had 72 hours of video from a Bill Mollison/geoff lawton PDC course. It was pretty awesome, but it has since been removed. During the series Bill was talking about how trees are rated in different categories (being true to seed was one of them, I think) and very rarely there is a tree that excels in all categories and there was a term for it. He went on to talk about how he knew a guy that had one of those trees and he sold individual acorns for $$$. Does anyone know what I'm talking about, know any more info, or where I could find said trees?

I think trees are usually heterozygous, so maybe the "master tree" was homozygous for all the desired characteristics?  That's the only thing that comes to mind

Howdy Valerie,

I remember what you're talking about, and I'm pretty sure it's somewhere in this lecture series.

Bill being the master of digression that he was though, I couldn't tell you where specifically it's at, but I remember the discussion.
