DescriptionPine plantations in the U.S. South include some of the most intensively managed and productive forests in the world. Studies have been established in recent decades to answer questions about whether the productivity of these plantations is sustainable. While intensive management practices greatly enhance tree growth, their effects on factors controlling growth responses across sites are not well understood. Papers in this set represent six perspectives on the issue of sustainable productivity of intensively managed loblolly pine, the South's most prevalent and commercially valuable pine species. They were among the papers presented during a symposium entitled "Long-term site productivity of loblolly pine plantations in the southern United States," held in New Orleans, LA, USA and co-sponsored by NCASI and the USDA Forest Service.
