    A two term function is described that is sig­nificantly correlated with annual diameter growth of individ­ual loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L.) trees. One term expresses competition in the whole stand; the other is a measure of the competitive advantage of individual trees. The function op­ erates by reducing the effective growing space of a tree, defined as the space available per tree in stands that are actively self-thinning.
