Description

To understand environmental combinations required to produce high-quality white pine, studies of both the species and its sites have been undertaken. Increased demands on land use have also stimulated the search for species and varieties of trees that will best adapt themselves to the relatively permanent factors of the site. The purpose of this study, as undertaken originally in 1962, was to add to the basic knowledge of soil factors controlling tree growth and specifically, provide information for evaluation of soil-site quality or white pine. This investigation was designed to consider a wide range of stands, sites, and soil characteristics.
