  1. \( {h}_a^2 \): heritability from ABLUP, \( {h}_m^2 \): marker-based heritability from GBLUP, \( {h}_{am}^2 \): the combined heritability based on variance explained by SNP markers and residual additive genetic variance from GBLUP. Heritabilities and residual variances reported here are the average across seven sites for branch-cluster frequency and stem straightness, and across four sites for internal checking and external resin bleeding
