Stand density index for loblolly pine plantations in north Louisiana



Stand density index for loblolly pine plantations in north Louisiana



Southern journal of applied forestry 20(2): 110-113



Stand Density Index (SDI) equations and diagrams were developed and presented for loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L.) plantations in north Louisiana. Two different SDI diagrams are presented-one that utilizes the number of trees per acre and average stand diameter, and a second that uses the number of trees per acre and the basal (ft2) per acre. Basal area is presented as a second alternative to average stand diameter since many practicing foresters commonly use basal area for density management.
