    Description

    Height growth was determined by stem analysis for red pine in 12 natural and 10 planted stands on well-drained, fine textured soils. Growth closely followed the Gervorkiantz site index curves. When calculating site index, an age adjustment is desirable if the trees take longer than 8 years to attain breast height.
