Loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L.) is 1 of the main exotic species in commercial plantations in northern Iran. These plantations are situated in the Caspian forests of Iran, which border the southern coast of the Caspian Sea and cover an area of 1.9×10^6 ha. For the present experiment, unthinned, and lightly and moderately thinned stands were selected as 3 populations. Data were collected from a total of 180 trees among the different stand densities. For basal area analysis, 93 plots were measured… CONTINUE READING
