Predicting Site Index for Old-Field Loblolly Pine Plantations
Abstract:Height-over-age curves and site-index prediction tables were derived using nonlinear polymorphic regression models with data from 25-year-old old-field plantations ranging from coastal North Carolina to southwestern Arkansas. Plots from heavy silty clay soils of the interior flatwoods of Mississippi exhibited height growth patterns noticeably different from the overall pattern. A separate table and set of curves were developed for such sites.
