How uniformity of tree distribution affects stand growth

How uniformity of tree distribution affects stand growth

Forestry Chronicle 54(3): 156-158

Of the 8 plots (0.04 ha) established in a 13-yr-old Pinus resinosa plantation in Ontario, Canada, 4 were thinned to 35 or 36 uniformly distributed stems, and 4 were thinned to 36 trees distributed in 9 equally-spaced clumps of 4 trees. After 10 yr the clumped trees had smaller live crowns, lower d.b.h. increment and higher form class values. There was n.s.d. between treatments for vol./ha values.
