Development of Direct-Seeded and Planted Loblolly and Slash Pines Through Age 20
Abstract:After 20 years in the field, planted loblolly pine (Pinus taeda) yielded volumes that were not significantly higher than volumes on three of six direct-seeding treatments. However, planted trees were fewer in number, larger in diameter, and more uniformly spaced than seeded trees. Slash pine (P. elliottii) volumes were not influenced by regeneration method.
