Title: Site Evaluation for Hardwoods

Author: Francis, John K.;

Date: 1985

Source: In: Proceedings, Third Symposium of Southeastern Hardwoods, Dothan, AL. Atlanta, GA: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Southern Region. 31-37.

Publication Series: Paper (invited, offered, keynote)

Description: Foresters evaluate sites for an indication of potential growth and yield, for an ecological descriptor, and to correctly match the hardwood species to be planted with sites suitable for them. Site indexes measured directly from trees on the site are the preferable means of quantifying site. Because this method is not always possible, other means based on soil and environmental features can be used to predict site index.

Keywords: Site index, species-site matching, soil-site prediction
