Energy Output/Input Relationships for Loblolly Pine Stands
Abstract:Estimates of on-site energy outputs and inputs were calculated for a variety of management alternatives in plantations and direct-seeded stands of loblolly pine, Pinus taeda. Comparisons, in terms of the energy output/input ratios, revealed that plantations were nearly as energy-efficient as direct-seeded stands.
