DescriptionLoblolly pine is widely planted for soil stabilization and the rehabilitation of denuded, actively eroding uplands of the upper Gulf Coastal Plain in north Mississippi and west Tennessee. This paper presents methods and specifications that recent research has developed for such planting. It supplements information found in Wakeley’s Planting the Southern Pines and Wahlenberg’s Loblolly pine with information specifically applicable on sites where erosion control is a primary objective.
