    Description

    If lateral roots are first severed, southern pines can be pulled from the soil like carrots, therby adding 20 percent to the merchantable weight of each stem harvested. Morphology and chemical constituents of the taproots indicate their suitability for kraft pulping. Prototype harvesting equipment is being designed.
