This paper presents in detail the three-year history of 499 experimental plantings of shortleaf pine, white pine, yellow poplar, black walnut, white ash, and red gum on old fields in eastern Tennessee. Differences in rainfall, particularly during the first growing season, and in site factors are shown to have a marked effect on height growth and survival, with considerable variation between species.
