Remeasurements of 161 monumented plots in site-prepared slash pine plantations were used to develop an equation for predicting future survival. Mortality rate on rust infected trees was viewed as the uninfected tree rate plus additional components that arise due to rust infection. The instantaneous mortality rate for uninfected trees was estimated to be -0.012 for all ages. Estimated infected mortality rate decreased in a nonlinear fashion with age. Forest Sci. 31:88-94.
