Title: Detecting Responses of Loblolly Pine Stand Development to Site-Preparation Intensity: A Modeling Approach

Author: Xu, Mingguang; Harrington, Timothy B.; Edwards, M. Boyd;

Date: 1997

Source: Proceedings of the Ninth Biennial Southern Silvilcultural Research Conference, Clemson, SC, Feb. 25-27, 1997, USDA General Techinical Report SRS-20

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: Data from an existing site preparation experiment in the Georgia Piedmont were subjected to a modeling approach to analyze effects of site preparation intensity on stand development of loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L.) 5 to 12 years since treatment. An average stand height model that incorporated indicator variables for treatment provided an accurate description of responses to site-preparation intensity, with steepness of the height trajectory increasing with site-preparation intensity. Stand basal area and volume varied similarly among treatments as found for height, with their development increasing with treatment intensity.
