Abstract:Six-year heights of slash pine (Pinus elliottii Engelm.) on a wet site in central Louisiana were positively correlated with average depth to the water table and redox potential of the soil in winter. There was a close, positive relationship between average depth to water and average redox potential that was not altered by bedding or flat disking before planting. Hence, bedding significantly increased tree heights by increasing depth to the water table and raising redox potential. Forest Sci. 16:399-402.
