Title: Effect of plantation density on kraft pulp production from red pine (Pinus resinosa Ait.)

Author: Zhu, J.Y.; Myers, G.C.;

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: Red pine (Pinus resinosa Ait.) butt logs from 38 year old research plots were used to study the effect of plantation stand density on kraft pulp production. Results indicate that plantation stand density can affect pulp yield, unrefined pulp mean fibre length, and the response of pulp fibre length to pulp refining. However, the effect of plantation stand density on physical and optical properties of paper was not significant and within the measurement errors of data obtained from testing handsheets. Therefore, we conclude that pulp and paper properties should not be a factor affecting forest management for the plantation density range studied.
