    Goals / Objectives 1) Continue developing, updating, and modifying growth and yield models for unmanaged loblolly and slash pine plantations in east Texas. 2) Develop growth and yield models for intensively managed loblolly pine plantations in east Texas. 3) Provide data to help develop and validate techniques for updating forest inventories that use remotely sensed data. Growth and yield of loblolly and slash pine plantations in east Texas and west Louisiana is not well understood, especially for intensively managed plantations. This project will provide reliable growth and yield information for plantations growing in the West Gulf Coastal Plain region which are under-represented in other existing forest growth and yield models.

    If all of Florida’s slash pine forests were managed for water production, the difference in water yield between thinned and unthinned slash pine forests—approximately , million liters—would contribute roughly 4% of the total withdrawal of water for public use (Please note that these aggregated estimates of forest water yield. Existing studies include periodic remeasurements of both longleaf pine plantations established on intensively prepared sites and also naturally established stands. For the purpose of comparison, the best three of five monitored plantations on the lands of the T.R. Miller Mill Company in Escambia County, AL and naturally established stands in a long-term burning study on the.

    The resulting total pine inventory would appear as follows: Pine Timber Inventory 0 20 40 60 80 13 15 17 19 21 23 25 Age Years) Inventory (tons/acre) The value of different pine products depends to a large extent on the tree size and quality (limb & knots, forks, disease, etc). The largest and best quality trees are usually sold as. The growth and yield model for thinned loblolly pine plantations developed in this study was based on data from the Virginia Division of Forestry (VDF). This data set consists of acre permanent plots from old-field plantations in the Virginia Piedmont and Coastal Plain.

Mortality is an important element of growth and yield models, especially if only low intensity silvicultural treatments are carried out. The objective of the present study was to develop a model for predicting tree number decline in planted even-aged stands of Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) in Galicia (northwestern Spain).

The model was constructed using data from two inventories of a trial. Study 1 was on a Beauregard silt loam, and Study 2 was on Ruston and McKamie fine sandy loams. After 10 growing seasons, stocking ranged from 1, longleaf to 1, loblolly pines per ha in Study 1.
