Between 1957 and 1967, volume and basal area growth of loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L.) were significantly related to initial basal area and diameter of loblolly, and initial cubic volume of all trees on the plot. Regression equations account for 30 percent of the variation in cubic volume growth and 64 percent of the variation in basal area growth during the 10-year period. Forest Sci. 16:342-346.
