      Loblolly Pine Plantation Management Recommendations Below is a list of management recommendations to insure that you get the most from your new stand of Loblolly Pine Seedlings. Time frame will vary depending on the individual site conditions. The four loblolly pine plantations (identified as stands 1 through 4) rep-resent age classes of 5, 10, 20, and 30 years (Table 1). The 5-year-old stand was established on pasture seeded to fescue and grazed 8 to 10 years prior to pine establishment. The area wasFile Size: KB.

    The efficiency of southern pine plantation fertilization and understory control practices and the long-term effects of these practices on non-crop tree organisms and nutrient cycling processes have not been well established. This project examines the effects of diverse fertilization and vegetation control practices on the soil-plant-microbial systems of loblolly pine plantations in Louisiana.   A Range-wide Experiment to Investigate Nutrient and Soil Moisture Interactions in Loblolly Pine Plantations.

    loblolly and slash pines. Because of rapid early growth, loblolly and slash pines have often been planted on soils and sites better suited to longleaf. Loblolly and slash pine plantations can be converted to longleaf by clearcutting and planting seedlings but mature tree cover is. The pattern of the planted loblolly pines in 17 of the pine plantations was determined to be significantly uniform at the level and random in the remaining two plantations. In contrast, pattern of hardwood rootstocks was determined to be significantly uni- form in five Author: David R. Weise, Glenn R. Glover.

Loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L.) is the most important timber-producing tree species in Arkansas and the South as a whole. Loblolly pine naturally occurs primarily in the coastal plain region of the southern United States. In Arkansas, this region comprises the southwest third of the state (Figure 1).

Even though the primary objective is to grow merchantable timber on these lands, the plantations offer food Cited by: 7.

Loblolly pine is the most commercially important pine of the Southeast where it is dominant on approximately 29 million acres and makes up over one-half the standing pine volume. This pine cannot survive the occasional severe winters of USDA zone 5 but has a solid hold on most of the southern is the most common plantation pine in the southern forest but has a problem with.

Stand establishment techniques involving multiple herbicide applications are commonly used on industrial pine (Pinus spp.) plantations, raising concern over potential effects on white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) forage production. We tested effects of stand establishment intensity on deer forage in 1–5-year-old loblolly pine (Pinus taeda) plantations (n ¼ 4) in the East Gulf.

The variables employed in this study include plant-ing density, timing, intensity, and frequency of thinnings, timing of the final harvest, individual landowner’s ARR, site index, management costs, stumpage prices.

Loblolly pine survival is assumed to be TPA at age 5-years. The mean annual increment (MAI) for loblolly is assumed to be cds/ac/yr ( tons/ac/yr) through age years with the two thinnings.
