    The natural range of slash pine was once defined by its susceptibility to fire during the seedling stage, but now the species has been planted as far north as southern Tennessee, as fire prevention has increased over the past 7 decades. Slash pine has even started spreading to drier sites, once dominated by longleaf pine due to its abundant. Shop gallon slash pine shade tree (l) in the trees section of

Slash pine planted on an average old-field site (in year basis) will grow about three feet annually for the first 15 first year after planting, growth is only one-half to three-quarters of a foot, the second year about two feet, the third year about three feet; then, for a period, as much as.

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 performance. They begin producing cones at approximately years of age. The typical variety produces good cone crops every 3 years, while the south Florida variety produce good cone crops every 4 years.

It has been estimated that 90% of the winged seeds from slash pines fall within 46 m ( feet) of the parent tree.

About 85% of the planted acreage will be in 1oblolly pines and the re- maining 15% in slash pines. When future yield estimates and economic values of the planted pines are known, the magnitude and timing of thinnings or final harvest can be planned in an op- timal manner.

Such predictions of. If done early in the pines' development, thinning is an important tool to prevent problems with insects, diseases, or other stresses such as wildlfire or strong winds. For a summary of the most troublesome insects diseases affecting southern pine species, see Key Plant, Key Pests: Pine Species at Fusiform Rust.

An Economic Analysis of Investing in Planted Pine Timberland By: Rick Cooper GA Registered Forester # In this timber marketing and management exercise, an analysis of the economics of investing in planted pine timberlands was performed in order to help explain how revenues are achieved and the expected returns for a typical investment.

Tree volume and upper-stem diameter predictions for planted loblolly and slash pine based on a compatible volume-taper system with segmented-stem form factors. PMRC Technical Report 20 pp. Cieszewski, C. and R. Bailey. Slash Pine grows well on a variety of acidic soils in full sun or partial shade.

It does poorly in basic soil (high pH) and so is not recommended for soils with high pH, or where irrigation water has a high pH. Once established, it is more tolerant of wet sites than most other Pines and is moderately salt-tolerant.

Loblolly pine is usually planted, with limited acreages of shortleaf pine, slash pine, and longleaf pine planted on appro-priate sites. Loblolly Pine (Pinus taeda L.) This pine is found throughout Mississippi and is the most important and widely planted pine in the South.

Loblolly pine produces more than half the total pine volume in the region. Equations are given which estimate (1) tree height, (2) height to any specified diameter, (3) diameter at any specified height, (4) bole area of any section of stem, and (5) volume of any section.

Slash pine trees are moderate to fast growers that can reach 60 to 80 feet tall.
