Site index of loblolly pine on Ruston soils may be closely predicted from April-through-September rainfall and thickness of topsoil (A horizon). The prediction equation may be useful in establishing climatic zones within the geographic area in which Ruston soils occur. It also may be useful in determining the effectiveness of certain soil mapping units dealing with surface soil thickness.
