Periodic annual board-foot growth was related to age, site index, total basal area per acre, and some of their interactions in thinned loblolly pine stands in Georgia, Virginia, and South Carolina. Values presented in this paper provide stocking standards for loblolly pine grown in uniformly spaced, insect- and disease-free stands. Growth prediction values must be scaled down for extensive holdings because of heterogeneity of stocking, clustering, voids, and nonproducing areas.
