Observations from the Bast Texas Pine Plantation Research Project were available for analysis in this study.
In particular, observations are available that track the development of loblolly pine plantation parameters, such as age and height during 14, 15 and 16 year periods of time.
Fortunately. many of the tracks begin with initial measurements in plantations that were less than 5 years old.
These particular data were analyzed in this study. The results are depicted on the next 6 pages.
