Stem analysis data were used to examine volume, height-dbh, form and taper relationships for loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L.) trees grown in unthinned old-field plantations, cutover-site plantations, and natural stands. Results showed significant differences in volume, height-dbh, tree form and taper relationships for loblolly pine grown in stands from these three origins. Thus, in order to accurately predict total and merchantable volumes as well as upper stem diameters and heights, forest managers should apply separate volume and taper equations for each stand class. South. J. Appl. For. 11(4):185-189.
