Effects of Site Preparation and Spacing on Planted Slash Pine
Areas, site treatments and spacing significantly affect height and diameter growth, total cubic volume and fusiform rust infection of planted slash pine in the coastal flatwoods of southeast Georgia. The best growth, greater volume and higher rust infection were on better drained sites. Site preparation involving harrowing increased height and diameter growth and cubic volume on all sites. Fusiform rust infection of dominant and co-dominant trees increased with an increase in spacing, site productivity and intensity of site treatment.
