    Description

    Describes an analysis of initial density and subsequent thinning options for red pine (Pinus resinosa Ait.) plantations in the Lake States. Results showed that the initial number of established trees per acres has a major impact on the amount and quality of timber product yields, with 200 trees per acre (500/ha) thinned to 120 square feet of basal area per acre (27.5 m2/ha) maximizing board-foot volume yields.
