Stand density management diagram for loblolly pine plantations in north Louisiana



Stand density management diagram for loblolly pine plantations in north Louisiana



Southern journal of applied forestry 18(1): 40-45



A stand density management diagram for use with loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L.) plantations in north Louisiana has been developed. Three critical stand density boundaries important to management were defined: (1) the point of crown closure, (2) the point of self-thinning, and (3) the maximum tree size-stand density relationship. These three boundaries were estimated to occur at stand density index values of 160, 220, and 400, respectively. Three examples illustrating the use of these boundaries in thinning strategies are presented.
