Us Forest Serv Res Pap Se 24: 1-29
Compares survival, growth, and other characteristics of planted South Florida slash pine (Pinus elliottii var. densa Little and Dorman) and the typical slash pine variety (Pinus elliottii var. elliottii Engelm. ) through age 9. South Florida slash pine is more resistant to most pests and to fire, and suffers relatively less growth loss following cattle damage. The typical variety survives better, grows faster during the 1st years after planting, and has more resistance to wind damage.
