Title: Site-Species Relationships for Southern Hardwoods

Author: Blackmon, B. G.;

Date: 1978

Source: In: SAF Proceedings p. 354-359.

Description: The high cost of land and forest management make selection of sites suitable for planting hardwoods particularly important. Hardwoods have exacting soil requirements, and productivity can change significantly with small changes in conditions. The purpose of this paper is to review some of the attempts to evaluate sites for southern hardwoods, with emphasis on an approach recently developed by Baker and Broadfoot.
