Three Rings-Per-Inch, Dense Southern Pine-Should It Be Developed?
Abstract:Three-rings-per-inch, dense southern pine is a debatable goal in forests managed for solid wood products, but possibilities are evident. The problems lie in product specifications, strength, attractiveness, paint retention, gluing characteristics and machinability. An interim goal for southern pine silviculturists is suggested.
