Title: Family Differences Influence the Aboveground Biomass of Loblolly Pine Plantations

Author: Pope, P.E.; Graney, D.L.;

Publication Series: Research Paper (RP)

Description: We compared the aboveground biomass of 4 half-sib families of loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L.) 11 years after planting. Total dry weights differed significantly among families in plantations on the same soil type with the same site index. Differences in biomass resulted from differences in stem form and branch size. Distribution of growth -the proportion of tree weight in wood, bark, branches and foliage- was not significantly different by family. Average total dry matter and distribution of dry matter were similar to results achieved in other studies, but average annual production by family differed substantially from previously reported plantation data.
