DescriptionEarly gains in lobloliy and slash pine height growth achieved by bedding an imperfectly drained Beauregard-Caddo silt loam diminished somewhat by age 15. After age 8 there were no increases in growth response to site treatment for either species. For loblolly, yields on flat-disked and bedded plots were about 6 cords (500 ft3) per acre greater than controls. Much of the difference is attributed to better first-year survival on mechanically treated plots. For slash, yield differences among treatments were small and relatively unimportant.
