Surveys of established plantations of Choctawhatchee sand pine (Pinus clausa var. immuginata Ward) on sandhills in 10 Georgia counties showed that the growth is nearly comparable to that observed on sandhills in Florida within the natural range of this variety. The observed growth is better than could be expected from other pine species on these excessively drained, infertile sites. Significant damage from insects, disease, or cold weather was not evident.
