DescriptionA loblolly pine stand was subjected to two cultural treatments to determine treatment effects in the 9th through 12th growing seasons. Thining resulted in less spring height growth in the 9th and 10th growing seasons than no thinning, but thinning resulted in more diameter growth each year. Fertilization increased height and diameter growth beginning in the 10th growing season, with the effect of fertilization on diameter growth being most pronounced on the thinned plota.
