Stand Density Affects Growth of Choctawhatchee Sand Pine

Choctawhatchee sand pine (Pinus clausa var. immuginata D. B. Ward) was grown for 20 years at densities of 400, 600, and 800 trees per acre. Growing Choctawhatchee sand pine at 400 trees per acre resulted in significantly larger trees, but less wood was produced per acre than at higher densities. The ideal density depends on the management objectives, but for rotations of 20-25 years and chip harvesting systems, a density of 600 trees is recommended. For rotations of 30-35 years with conventional bolt and log harvests, 400 to 500 trees per acre seems better. South. J. Appl. For. 10:128-31, Aug. 1986.
