A report is given about the establishment, development, data recording and results as well as the endeavors of transferring the results of a 33 year old open pollinated progeny trial of Prunus avium L. into practical use. The progenies showed differences with respect to mortality, height, diameter at breast height, branch-thickness and branching character. Differences in trunk shape were not distinct, however, about 35% of all trees showed from age 25 years on either of the 2best of 5 shape classes. By selection and in vitro propagation of 45 of the best clones in co-operation with the Department of Forest Tree Breeding of the Lower Saxony Forest Research Centre the establishment of a seed orchard has been initiated.
