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. 1. Introduction. Loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L.) and slash pine (Pinus elliottii Engelm.) are the two most important commercial timber species in the southeastern United States (Smith et al., , Dicus and Dean, ).An important decision for forest landowners is to select the proper species for a given site. Forest landowners require knowledge of loblolly and slash pine growth performance.
intensivelly managed pine plantations: since IMPs grow times faster than PSOF (Borders and Bailey , Siry , Siry et al. ), we applied the planted pine yield tables with conservatively doubled growth rates to estimate growth of IMPs.

Two ways that a landowner may market pine straw. possible deleterious effects of frequent removals, we recommend raking up to five times during the life of the pine plantation (the rotation).

Shortleaf is the favored pine of the southern pine beetle, in part because its low resin flow cannot expel invading beetles. Shortleaf pine is resistant to fusiform rust a common problem of loblolly and slash pine leaf disease is a serious threat to shortleaf that reduces growth rates and .

Yield tables and stand structure for shortleaf pine plantations on abandonded fields in Tennessee, Alabama and Georgia Highlands.
More acres of planted slash pine are also approaching a merchantable condition than any other species, even though the bulk of the plantings has been in the last 20 years.
Because most planting is so recent, there has been a lack of information on the growth and yield of slash pine by: 3. tion on the growth and yield of slash pine the infor-mation was piecemeal and only then did the first major contribution on growth and yield then, such information has been accumulating at an ever increasing rate until today, there is considerable data available on slash Cited by: 3.

This study compared growth responses in planted loblolly pine (Pinustaeda L.) and slash pine (tii Engelm.) stands thinned by using three row-felling methods and at the same density levels, three selective felling methods.
The study plots were in six plantations, aged Cited by: water yield on the proﬁtability and optimal forest management of slash pine in Florida.

A plantation is a large-scale estate meant for farming that specializes in cash crops that are grown include cotton, coffee, tea, cocoa, sugar cane, opium, sisal, oil seeds, oil palms, fruits, rubber trees and forest trees.
Protectionist policies and natural comparative advantage have sometimes contributed to determining where plantations are located. tems; and explores trends in managed slash pine forests. SILVICAL CHARACTERISTICS Identifying Characteristics The typical slash pine tree has a long, clear bole and a relatively short crown, which results from self-pruning.

The most common method of artificially planting seedlings. Seedlings raised in a nursery can be ready for planting in one year (called seedlings). Timber Growth versus Value Growth: Using a proprietary computer pine growth model based on data and algorithms from The University of Georgia’s Warnell Forestry School, the average planted pine acre was projected for growth and value.
Growth rates varied over the projected period form as low as tons/acre/year to as much as tons/acre. Growth models represent the relationship between the quantity of yield and growth and the various factors that explain or allow for the estimation of this growth (Davis et al., ) and several.
The East Texas Pine Plantation Research Project was initiated in as a long-term, comprehensive research program investigating the factors affecting the management of pine plantations in the Western Gulf Coastal Plain region.

PMRC Technical Report 23 pp. Matching the right pine species to the site is a critical first step. Planting a species on an inappropriate site can result in higher mortality, poor tree form, and stagnated growth.
For example, there have been several plantings of slash pine on sand hill sites that grew poorly because the planting site was not suitable for slash pine. observed growth and yield of loblolly and slash pine plantations in east texas.

austin state university nacogdoches, tx april 1. Pine plantations require some management, as with any other crop, that includes elements like bedding, fertilization, thinning, etc.
However, one important element is the use of better seeds from improved genetics. All of these will help to make the most of this forest resources. However, deciding what is the best of all of these, given how long the forests grow, requires the use of computer.
A new whole-stand growth and yield model for loblolly and slash pine plantations was published in the Southern Journal of Applied Forestry (SJAF). Another manuscript submitted to SJAF (reported in the annual report) about new height-diameter equations for loblolly and slash pine trees in East Texas has been accepted and is under revision.
We conclude that payments for water yield are economically feasible for slash pine stands in Florida, and would benefit forest landowners, particularly with higher prices for water yield. Forests play an important role with respect to water resources, and can be managed to increase surface- and groundwater recharge.
In Florida, pine straw raking is a relatively new enterprise, but by it had become an important industry, with an output similar to the value of pulpwood (Hodges et al.
). Longleaf and slash pines are the favored southern pine species because their long needles bale well. However, loblolly plantations can be raked when demand is not met.A species comparison study was established in in the Lower Coastal Plain of southern Georgia and northern Florida, in which loblolly and slash pine plots were paired for combinations of planting density (– trees/ha) and management intensity (operational and intensive) at nine locations.An Evaluation of Available Growth and Yield Models for Longleaf Pine Barry D.
