Description: Examining the role of foliage in stand development across a range of stand structures provides a more detailed understanding of the processes driving productivity and allows further development of process-based models for prediction. Productivity changes observed at the stand scale will be the integration of changes at the individual tree scale, but few studies have analyzed crown attributes at the individual tree level. Studies analyzing loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L.) stand response to common silvicultural practices such as fertilization, control of competing vegetation, and density management are numerous. However, the physiological mechanisms that drive this response are not thoroughly understood (Jokela and others. 2004, King and others 2008, Tyree and others 2009, Will and others 2005).
