Site Index Curves for Eastern Cottonwood Plantations in the Lower Mississippi Delta
Abstract:A site index equation was developed based on stem-analysis data collected from 30 sites of an eastern cottonwood (Populus deltoides Bartr.) plantation in the lower Mississippi Delta. The Bailey and Clutter (1974) equation form was selected for stand height prediction. Polymorphic site index curves (base age 10 years) were presented based on this equation. These curves should be applicable to cottonwood plantations up to 11 years old in and near the Mississippi River Delta. South. J. Appl. For. 15(1):28-30.
