Timber inventory data is the basis for many monetary transactions related to timber and timberland sale and (or) purchase as well as for development of timber management plans. The value of such data is well known and much appreciated for sale and (or) purchase of standing merchantable timber. Unfortunately, the value of timber inventory data for planning(More)
The wood products industry is using herbicides to control competing vegetation, as well as fertilizers to increase growth in southern pine. In 1987, a longterm monitoring study was established to determine the growth potential of loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L.) in the southeastern United States (Borders and Bailey 2001). Very intensive cultural practices(More)
A culture/density study was established in 1995 in the Lower Coastal Plain of the southeastern USA to evaluate the effects of intensive silviculture and current operational practices on the growth and yield of loblolly pine plantations across a wide range of planting densities (741–4,448 trees/ha). The operational regime consisted of bedding and herbicide(More)
• A site preparation study was established in 1986 to evaluate the effect of different site preparation treatments on growth and yield of loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L.) plantations on the Piedmont and Upper Coastal Plain regions of the southern United States. Site preparation treatments included: (1) burn only, (2) chop-burn, (3) shear-pile-disk, (4)(More)
To sustainably manage loblolly pine plantations for bioenergy and carbon sequestration, accurate information is required on the relationships between management regimes and energy, carbon, and nutrient export. The effects of cultural intensity and planting density were investigated with respect to energy, carbon, and essential nutrients in aboveground(More)
