Pinaceae -- Pine family

    James B. Baker and 0. Gordon Langdon

    Loblolly pine (Pinus taeda), also called Arkansas pine, North  Carolina pine, and oldfield pine, is the most commercially important  forest species in the southern United States, where it is dominant on  about 11.7 million ha (29 million acres) and makes up over one-half of the  standing pine volume. It is a medium-lived, intolerant to moderately  tolerant tree with rapid juvenile growth. The species responds well to  silvicultural treatments and can be managed as either even-aged or  uneven-aged natural stands, or can be regenerated artificially and managed  in plantations.
