Title: Thinning and Pruning Influence Glaze Damage in a Loblolly Pine Plantation

Author: Burton, James D.;

Date: 1981

Source: Res. Note SO-264. New Orleans, LA: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Southern Forest Experiment Station. 4 p.

Publication Series: Research Note (RN)

Description: An old-field plantation was thinned and pruned at age 11 and again at age 14 to 4 basal area levels and 3 crown percent levels. A survey was made to determine how damage by an ice storm at age 15 was influenced by treatment. Severe damage was heaviest in the densest stands and in stands with the shortest crowns, while the percent of stand destroyed was least under the heaviest thinning and lowest pruning. However, basal area and stems/acre in remaining growing stock were greatest under the lightest thinning and lowest pruning.

Keywords: Pinus taeda L., freezing rain, understocking
