Notes and Observations: Mortality of Planted Loblolly Pine from Hardwood Overtopping
Abstract:Mortality of loblolly pine is related to the degree of small hardwood overtopping at time of planting. Overtopping varied from 25-87 percent of the study area. Mortality on 12 1/3-acre plots ranged from 12-48 percent one year after planting and up to 32-98 percent four years later. Linear regressions developed for the second to fifth year were highly significant.
