Uneven-Aged Management in the Loblolly-Shortleaf Pine Type
Abstract:The advantages and disadvantages of uneven-aged management in the loblolly-shortleaf pine type (Pinus taeda L. and P. echinata Mill.) are discussed. This evaluation concludes that uneven-aged management is feasible for woodlands of small landowners. Where 4,000 board feet (International ¼-inch rule) per acre were left following a cyclic cut, the annual growth was more than 400 board feet per acre in trees 11.6 inches d.b.h. and larger.
