In most cases, sawtimber-size loblolly pine trees provide the greatest economic benefit. Unmanaged loblolly pine stands can take up to 50 years to mature into sawtimber-size trees. Managed stands can generate sawtimber-size trees much faster, often within 25 to 40 years depending on the manage­ ment regime.

Aboveground biomass of slash pine in a natural sawtimber stand in Southern Alabama. Asheville, N.C.: Southeastern Forest Experiment Station, (OCoLC)   Longleaf pine trees 6 to 18 inches d.b.h. were selected from a natural, uneven-aged sawtimber stand in southern Alabama to determine weight and volume of aboveground biomass.

On the average, 85 percent of the dry weight of the total tree was wood, 11 percent was bark, and 4 percent was needles. The average tree sampled had 88 percent of its wood in the stem and 12 percent in the.

Most of the individual-tree allometric models available for the species are local, relying on stem diameter outside bark at breast height (DBH) and total tree height (HT), but seldom include stand-level variables such as stand age, basal area or Cited by: 5.

The determined values of the biomass in the pine sawtimber stand growing on the fresh mixed coniferous forest site are similar to the results reported by Kubiak et al. [ a]. According the above-mentioned studies, the over ground weight of dry pine wood on the area of 1 ha amounted to kg and exceeded by 1% the values de% %.

About 83% of the biomass of this tree is above-ground and 17% is below-ground. The stem, in-cluding bark, is about 72% of the total biomass. Care must be exercised in interpreting biomass data.

Asheville, N.C.: Forest Service, U.S. Dept. of Agriculture, Southeastern Forest Experiment Station, (OCoLC) The ease and success of planting slash pine have signifi-cantly increased in its range.

Extensive planting and natural regeneration of open agricultural and forest land brought a sharp rise in slash pine acreage between and (Sheffield and others ).

Much of the planting was on sites that did not favor slash pine, and where performanceCited by: The aboveground biomasses of the four major species of southern pine 6 to 20 inches DBH growing in natural, closed, uneven-age sawtimber stands are compared.

The green and dry weight of trees with identical DBH and total height differ significantly with species. Slash Pine-- Pinus elliotti: Primarily found in Florida, southern Georgia, Alabama, and Mississippi, slash pine has the smallest native range of the major southern pines.

This species of pine has been at the cornerstone of one of the oldest national industries, naval stores. Slash pine is also called southern pine, yellow slash pine, swamp pine, pitch pine, and Cuban pine. Slash pine, along with longleaf pine, is a commercially important pine tree and one of the most frequently planted timber species in North America.

Two varieties are recognized: P. elliottii var. elliottii, the slash pine most frequently. Evaluating Pine Weight and Value in a Stand: In the stand: Estimate or measure the dbhs (diameter @ feet) and heights southern pines then tally each tree by dbh (to nearest inch) and height (to nearest 10 feet) class.

Another factor that affects the thinning method is the level of diseased or damaged trees present in a pine stand. Figure 2. An illustration of live crown ratio. When live crown ratios drop near or below 30 percent, it is time to conduct a thin.
