Abstract:

A pioneering case study in the Old Orchard Plantation on Biltmore Estate near Asheville, North Carolina, considered current yields and the effects of periodic thinning on height and basal area growth, as well as cubic volume and board-foot yields. Established in 1899, one of three plots of this eastern white pine stand was first thinned in 1916. Beyond providing growth-and-yield data, the Old Orchard Plantation demonstrates the value of maintaining permanent forest research plots for long-term ecological and silvicultural studies.
