Loblolly Pine Stocking Levels affect Potential for Southern Pine Beetle Infestation

By comparison with any o several stocking standards, loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L.) stands infested with southern pine beetle (Dendroctonus frontalis Zimm.) on the Kisatchie National Forest, Louisiana, were frequently overstocked. Stocking levels associated with reduced stand and tree growth and frequent intermittent water deficits also enhance successful southern pine beetle attack. Charts that help determine how well existing stocking meets management objectives are also useful for judging stand vulnerability to the southern pine beetle.ยน
