Dry Wood Weight Yields of Loblolly Pine
Abstract:Studies of dry wood weight were summarized to show methodology, difficulty, and restrictions in the development of dry wood weight yield tables. Because of the close relationship between breast height and total tree values it is possible to make a dry weight yield table by felling and sampling 50 to 80 trees of a given species under a given set of conditions. Such a table was constructed for natural stands of loblolly pine in the Coastal Plain of South Carolina taking into account various categories of site, age, and stand density. Additional data for stands of various ages may be obtained by breast height sampling and then reading the total tree values from regression equations derived from the felled trees. A key factor is that dry weight yield tables can be no more accurate than that of the volumes on which they are based.
