Three Rings-Per-Inch, Dense Southern Pine-Can It Be Developed?
Abstract:It will take the best sites, intensive silviculture, intensive selection and breeding, correct geographical area and rotation ages no greater than 25 years to produce three-rings-per-inch, dense southern pine. A major difficulty will be to maintain constant ring growth throughout the rotation. A specific gravity of 0.50 or greater cannot now be provided; the normal growth pattern of low gravity near tree center and higher gravity near the outside will be difficult to change.
