DescriptionA whole stand growth and yield system for planted longleaf pine (Pinus palustris Mill.) was developed from permanent plot data collected annually over an 8 year period. The dataset consists of 12 intensively-managed longleaf pine plantations that are located in Lee, Worth, Mitchell, and Baker counties in southwest Georgia. Stand survival, dominant height, basal area, and cubic foot volume yield models were developed and incorporated in a computer growth and yield simulator. Model prediction error remained low across a variety of planting densities.
