Effects of Diameter, Crown Ratio, and Growth Rate on Gum Yields of Slash and Longleaf Pine
Abstract:Diameter, crown-length ratio, and average ring width are useful criteria for estimating gum yields of slash and longleaf pine. The authors have computed estimated gum yields based on these criteria and use the results as evidence in favor of raising the present minimum diameter limit for turpentining on poorer than average sites.
