Shortleaf and Loblolly Pine Growth in the Mid-South
Abstract:Loblolly pine is a preferred species for planting well into the range of shortleaf pine in the Mid-South. These studies show that early growth of loblolly gives it an advantage of one-fourth to one-hall cord per acre per year yield over planted shortleaf pine on the same areas. This advantage could be offset by developing means of stimulating early growth of shortleaf seedlings.
