Title: Growth and Yield of Slash Pine Plantations

Author: Bennett, Frank A.;

Date: 1963

Source: Res. Pap. SE-1. Asheville, NC: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Southeastern Forest Experiment Station. 25 p.

Publication Series: Research Paper (RP)

Description: Although slash pine has the most limited range of the major southern pines, more has been planted than any other southern pine, or for that matter, than any timber species in North America. More acres of planted slash pine are also approaching a merchantable condition than any other species, even though the bulk of the plantings has been in the last 20 years.

Because most planting is so recent, there has been a lack of information on the growth and yield of slash pine plantations. Until 1955 the information was piecemeal and only then did the first major contribution on growth and yield appear. Since then, such information has been accumulating at an ever increasing rate until today, there is considerable data available on slash pine plantation growth and yield within the species' natural range, scattered as it is.

It is the purpose of this paper to bring together this information into a single summary bulletin based on the best experience and knowledge to date.
