Reforestation projects of the 1930s established plantations of red pine in central Pennsylvania. When planted in soils of shale or sandstone origin with good internal drainage, these plantations would achieve 65 to 90 ft in average height at 50 years of age. Unthinned stand basal area for trees planted at 6 x 6, 8 x 8, and 10 x 10 ft ranged from 200 to 290 ft² at 42 years of age. Periodic inventories from 16 thinned and 18 unthinned plantations between 15 and 42 years of age were used to determine the importance of original spacing, site index, and thinning on growth and yield. These central Pennsylvania plantations were comparable to natural range stands in accumulated volume and response to thinning, when age and site index were taken into account. North. J. Appl. For. 2:111-113, Dec. 1985.
