    Description

    eometry-oriented methodology yielded a compatible taper-volume-weight system of models whose parameters were estimated using data from intensively managed loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L.) plantations in the lower coastal plain of Georgia. Data analysis showed that fertilization has significantly reduced taper (inside and outside bark) on the upper segment and augmented the stem merchantable volume there, which was modeled using an adjusted form factor. On the other hand, the unit-weights of fertilized trees were not significantly different from unfertilized trees. Finally, our analysis showed no significant impacts of complete vegetation control on taper, volume or weight characteristics.
