Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: Shortleaf pine trees 6 to 20 inches d.b.h. were selected from a natural, uneven-aged sawtimber stand in northern Mississippi to determine weight and volume of aboveground biomass. On the average, 84 percent of the dry weight of the total tree was wood, 12 percent was bark, and 4 percent was needles. The average tree sampled had 88 percent of its wood in the stem and 12 percent in the crown. Trends in biomass proportions are discussed; and specific gravity, moisture content, and green weight per cubic foot are presented for the total tree and its components. Tables developed with regression equations predict weight and volume of the total tree and its components by d.b.h. and total hight classes.
