The influence of soil conditions on tree growth is widely recognized, but there is little specific information on these rather complex site factors. The need of measure of the productive capacity of soils which are not now supporting a forest cover, and the possibility of changing the forest cover on certain soils to species better adapted to them, was responsible for the initiation of this study in the Duke Forest during the summer of 1933. The present paper gives a brief summary of the more outstanding correlations observed between certain physical soil characters and the site index of shortleaf pine (Pinus echinata Mill.).
