Multiple regression equations using topographic and soil factors were developed for predicting height growth and site index for red pine planted on old-field sites in the unglaciated Western and Central Allegheny Plateau Regions of Ohio. Regression equations containing slope position and aspect combined with tree age accounted for 58% of the variation in heights of trees. Height growth increased with A soil horizon thickness, and adding that variable to equations increased the variation explained to 61%; conversely, growth decreased as clay content of the B soil horizon increased and adding that factor further increased the variation accounted for to 66%.
