DescriptionSix species of southern pines were planted on a Piedmont site in South Carolina. Comparisons were made among species for height, d.b.h., and survival at 13 years. Loblolly pine grew best, but slash pine could be substituted with little growth loss. Shortleaf pine was slightly lower in growth and survival when compared with loblolly pine. Virginia, longleaf, and eastern white pines compared so poorly with the other three species that they probably would be regarded as economically unimportant for timber production.
