Management of Shortleaf Pine Plantations in North Mississippi
Abstract:Residual basal areas did not have a significant effect on cubic volume growth in a shortleaf pine (Pinus echinata Mill.) thinning study in north Mississippi first thinned at age 23 and remeasured at five-year intervals to age 48. Residual basal area did have a significant effect on board foot growth between age 38 and 45, the period during which board foot growth peaked. Cubic foot growth appears to have peaked at about age 35. Average total 48-year production on thinned plots was 64 cords and 15,868 board feet, International ¼-inch Rule.
