Title: Ten-Year Effect of Six Site-Preparation Treatments on Piedmont Loblolly Pine Survival and Growth

Author: Edwards, M. Boyd;

Date: 1994

Source: Res. Pap. SE-288. Asheville, NC: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Southeastern Forest Experiment Station. 12 p.

Publication Series: Research Paper (RP)

Description: Limited information is available on growth responses to different levels of intensity for site preparation in the Piedmont. In the present study, six intensities of site preparation were compared for their effect on survival, height and diameter growth, total volume produced, and basal area per acre for the first 10 years after treatment. Rates of survival and growth were lower for pines in the control plots than for any others. In general, tree performance improved as the intensity of site preparation increased.

Keywords: Growth response, loblolly pine growth, pine survival, Pinus taeda, treatment intensity, yield
