Title: Planted Loblolly and Slash Pine Reponse to Bedding and Flat Disking on a Poorly Drained Site - An Update

Author: Cain, Michael D.;

Date: 1978

Source: Res. Note SO-237. New Orleans, LA: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Southern Forest Experiment Station. 6 p.

Publication Series: Research Note (RN)

Description: Early gains in lobloliy and slash pine height growth achieved by bedding an imperfectly drained Beauregard-Caddo silt loam diminished somewhat by age 15. After age 8 there were no increases in growth response to site treatment for either species. For loblolly, yields on flat-disked and bedded plots were about 6 cords (500 ft3) per acre greater than controls. Much of the difference is attributed to better first-year survival on mechanically treated plots. For slash, yield differences among treatments were small and relatively unimportant.

Keywords: Mound disking, bedding, flat disking, site modification, Pinus taeda, Pinus elliottii
