DescriptionLimited information is available on growth responses to different levels of intensity for site preparation in the Piedmont. In the present study, six intensities of site preparation were compared for their effect on survival, height and diameter growth, total volume produced, and basal area per acre for the first 10 years after treatment. Rates of survival and growth were lower for pines in the control plots than for any others. In general, tree performance improved as the intensity of site preparation increased.
