Title: Growth and Yield Predictions for Thinned Stands of Even-aged Natural Longleaf Pine

Author: Farrar, Robert M. Jr.;

Date: 1979

Source: Res. Pap. SO-156. New Orleans, LA: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Southern Forest Experiment Station. 82 p.

Publication Series: Research Paper (RP)

Description: This paper presents a system of equations and resulting tables that can predict stand volumes for thinned natural longleaf pine. The system can predict current and future total stand volume in cubic feet and merchantable stand volume in cubic feet, cords, and board feet. The system also provides for estimating dry-weight production of wood. The system uses input data on present and future age, site index, and present basal area. By using the tables, the timber growercan predict volume production for a variety of initial stand conditions, thinning regimes, and rotation lengths.
