A comparison of the effects of one-step and two-step pruning on loblolly pine stem form

A comparison of the effects of one-step and two-step pruning on loblolly pine stem form

Southern Journal of Applied Forestry 10(4): 251-253

Data were collected during thinning in 1978 from a plantation that was established at Homer, Louisiana in 1950, with plots pruned and/or thinned at age 6 yr. All plots were pruned at age 11 yr when a further thinning was performed. Girard form class and a segmented taper equation were used as measures of stem form. Trees pruned at age 6 and 11 yr had significantly less taper than trees pruned only at 11 yr. Stem form of trees pruned or pruned and thinned at 6 yr old was similar.
