Ten years after establishment, planted stands of loblolly pine had almost double the number of merchantable stems found in stands established by direct seeding. Uniform distribution of stems in planted stands may make earlier, heavier thinnings possible, thereby increasing total yield during the rotation. Based on published cost data and average stumpage values, an increase in yield of three cords per acre at the first thinning would offset the higher cost of planting seedlings.
