Description: This paper presents a comprehensive forest site classification system for the southern portion of the Cumberland Plateau in northern Alabama, northwest Georgia, and extreme south-central Tennessee. The system is based on physiography, geology, soils, topography, and vegetation. Twenty-one landtypes are described, and each landtype is evaluated in terms of productivity and desirability of selected pines and hardwoods for timber production. Also, each landtype is rated for five soil-related problems that can affect forest management operations.
Keywords: site index, mean annual increment, soil properties, pines, hardwoods
