Title: Plantation Spacing Affects Early Growth of Planted Virginia Pine

Author: Russell, T.E.;

Date: 1979

Source: Res. Note SO-248. New Orleans, LA: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Southern Forest Experiment Station. 4 p.

Publication Series: Research Note (RN)

Description: Spacings ranging from 4 x 4 to 8 x 8 ft did not affect 15 year height growth of Virginia pines planted on a cutover Cumberland Plateau site. Wider spacings produced trees of larger diameters than did closer spacings; closer spacings had more basal area and volume. Although height to the base of the live crown increased as spacing narrowed, self-pruning was poor at all spacings.

Keywords: Pinus virginiana Mill., artificial regeneration of pines
