Abstract

Loblolly pine ranks as a highly valuable tree for its pulp, paper, and lumber products. In the South, loblolly is planted more than any other conifer. Loblolly Pine: The Ecology and Culture of Loblolly Pine (Pinus taeda L.) adds to the technical foundations laid by Ashe (1915) and Wahlenberg (1960). Agriculture Handbook 713 encompasses genetics, tree improvement, field inventory and analysis, and international forestry, as well as ecology, direct seeding, and planting.Loblolly Pine: The Ecology and Culture of Loblolly Pine (Pinus taeda L.) highlights individual tree, stand, and land management alternatives useful to resource managers, students, researchers, and others.
