Title: Growth and yield in natural stands of slash pine and suggested management alternatives

Author: Bennett, Frank A.;

Date: 1980

Source: Res. Pap. SE-211. Asheville, NC: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Southeastern Forest Experiment Station. 8 p.

Publication Series: Research Paper (RP)

Description: Yields are presented by stand age, site index, and stand basal area at the beginning of a growth period. Differences between these yields and those projected 20 and 50 years ago are explained partly by changing definitions of normal or full stocking and partly by changes in forest management. If only pulpwood harvesting is envisioned, fairly high stocking is needed to get full production from the site. To produce sawtimber and veneer in a 35-year rotation, however, stocking must be considerably lower. For longer sawtimber-veneer rotations, heavier stocking is required to maximize yield.

Keywords: Pinus elliotrii, stand density, stocking, growth projections, yield tables
