Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: A 37-year-old pine plantation was harvested. An experiment was established at the site with three levels of logging residue retention and two levels of weed control. By age 10 years retaining harvest residue increased pine volumes by 10 m3 ha-l3 ha-1. Growth differed between genetic family, but there was no genetic family x residue treatment interaction. Retention of logging residue without weed control increased the amount of carbon in the soil at age 5 years, but carbon levels ecreased to pre-planting levels by age 10 years.
