DescriptionThe objective of this study was to assess the variability in weight-to-volume relationships in loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L.) plantations and to determine predictability based on stand age, site quality, and/or tree size. Trees ages ranged from 11 to 40 years, with diameters to 2 1 inches and heights to 9 1 feet. Measured site indices ranged from 45 to 72 at base age 25. A total of 75 planted loblolly pine trees were felled and processed to assess the variability in bole weight to volume relationships. Cubic volume, green weight, and dry weight relationships were investigated; and the predictability of these variables with respect to age, site index, and tree size was determined.
