Before engaging in the long-term enterprise of tree-planting, landowners rightly want clear-cut advice on what species to plant, what spacing to use, and how to treat the growing plantation to obtain the greatest revenue. This article reports contributions to this knowledge from 14-year-old experimental plantations of southern pines at Auburn, Alabama.
The Journal of Forestry is the most widely circulated scholarly forestry journal in the world. In print since 1902, the Journal has received several national awards for excellence. The mission of the Journal of Forestry is to advance the profession of forestry by keeping forest management professionals informed about significant developments and ideas in the many facets of forestry: economics, education and communication, entomology and pathology, fire, forest ecology, geospatial technologies, history, international forestry, measurements, policy, recreation, silviculture, social sciences, soils and hydrology, urban and community forestry, utilization and engineering, and wildlife management. The Journal is published bimonthly: January, March, May, July, September, and November.
