    There are 500,000 a cres of planted slash pine in the Georgia middle coastal plain and the Carolina Sandhills, with the oldest plantations dating back 25 years or more to early Civilian Conservation Corps days . Although the present plantation acreage is substantial, it is expected to expand considerably in the near future. Georgia, for instance, produced about 200,000,000 slash pine seedlings in 1958, many of which were planted in the middle coastal plain area. The management of existing plantations and the establishment of new plantations should be based upon the experience of the past 25 years. The Southeastern Forest Experiment Station, through the Cordele and Charleston Research Centers, has evaluated the wood yield potentials in relation to site productivity, age, spacing, survival. and degree of utilization.
