Subsurface Geologic Formations and Site Variation in Upper Sand Hills of South Carolina
Abstract:In the southeastern Sand Hills, the undulating surface of a less permeable, compact formation beneath the superficial sands was found to have a major influence on the rooting pattern of longleaf pine (Pinus palustris Mill.) and the moisture available to it by subsurface lateral movement. Site index of longleaf pine was related to the thickness of the sand layer and the buried topography of the compact formation.
