Title: Growth of lodgepole pine thinned to various densities on two sites with differing productivities in central Oregon.

Author: Cochran, P.H.; Dahms, Walter G.;

Date: 2000

Source: Res. Pap. PNW-RP-520. Portland, OR: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Pacific Northwest Research Station. 59 p

Publication Series: Research Paper (RP)

Description: Concave curvilinear decreases in diameter growth occurred with increasing stand densities. A convex curvilinear increase in gross growth of basal area and total cubic volume took place with increasing stand density. Maximum cumulative net cubic (total and merchantable) and board-foot yields varied curvilinearly with stand density. These yields peaked at intermediate stand densities or varied little between the four highest stand density levels.

Keywords: Growth, mortality, growing stock, thinning, lodgepole pine, stand density index, bole area
