DescriptionA 22-year-old loblolly (Pinus taeda L.) and slash pine (P. elliottii Engeim. var. elliotti)research plantation was clearciut and replanted with the same species to compare tree growth between the two rotations. Both pine species were more productive in the first than the second rotation through 10 growing seasons. Loblolly pine productivity was especially reduced on replanted plots that had been disked or disked and bedded 32 years earlier. However, reductions in growth and yield occurred on all treatment plots for both species.
