    Description

    From 1964 to 1967. the U.S. Forest Service established the Regional Longleaf Growth Study (RLGS) in the Gulf States with the objective of obtaining a database for the development of prediction systems for naturally regenerated, even-aged. longleaf pine stands. The database has been used for numerous quantitative studies. One of these efforts was a site index equation for naturally regenerated longleaf pine stands using data from the first and second re-measurements. The equation performed well except for younger stands less than 20 years in age and was more suited to the East Gulf area than the previously available curves. The sixth remeasurement (30-year) of the RLGS was completed recently and it covers a broader range of longleaf pine stands and longer observation periods. Preliminary results in the development of an updated site index equation using data through the sixth remeasurement are discussed and its performance statistically evaluated.
