A short-cut method of estimating tree site index for longleaf pine (Pinus palustris, Mill.) is described and evaluated. The method consists simply of obtaining averaging the individual tree site indices of the three to six trees of largest d.b.b. on a fifth-acre plot. Tests indicate that the procedure will yield estimates of the actual site index that are sufficiently accurate for most forest management purposes.
