We apologise for the inconvenience. Please try again later.

The effects of competition on loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L.) development during the initial 4 years of a plantation were investigated on an Upper Coastal Plain site in east-central Alabama. Height and diameter response to competition control in relation to time following treatment and amount of herbaceous competition were examined. Trees on plots receiving broadcast weed control for 2 years were twice the height and diameter of trees with no weed control after 4 years, while trees receiving banded weed control for 2 years were 1.6 times taller and 1.75 times larger in diameter. Broadcast and banded 1-year treatments were 1.4 times larger in both measures.
