    Description

    Pines in the Pine Region of southern New Jersey differ greatly in their rates of growth. In a few areas unthinned stands have grown fast, producing 35-40 cords in 45 years. In such areas dominant pines 7 years old may be 12 feet tall, and early diameter growth be at the rate of 1 inch in 3 years. But in most areas the growth is slow. Pines 25 years old may be only 15 feet tall, and large pines may add only 1 inch to their diameters in 15 years. Volume growth is correspondingly slow.
