Abstract:Volumes and yields are presented for a pioneering thinning study for eastern white pine at Biltmore, North Carolina. These historical study plots are part of a plantation established in 1899 by Carl A. Schenck. The first thinning was made in 1916 and five additional thinnings have followed. Although small and unreplicated, the study suggests that site strongly influenced stand densities and yields. Thinning apparently did not increase yield, nor appreciably increase the bolt, size of residual trees on plots of similar site index.
