    Variation in selected solid wood properties of young <em>Pinus patula</em> from diverse sites in the Mpumalanga escarpment area in South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern Forests: a Journal of Forest Science
    Regression analyses identified ‘Growth Days’ (an index expressing site moisture availability) as the only site variable contributing significantly to the prediction to wood density (R2 = 0.57), whereas the model predicting grain angle included only ‘Altitude’ (R2 = 0.60). These...
  3. The Relationship between Site Characteristics and <em>Pinus radiata</em> Growth on the Tsitsikamma Plateau, South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Forestry Journal
    A site-growth study using a range of data from 46 plots on the Tsitsikamma plateau was undertaken for modelling the growth of Pinus radiata. Growth models for the prediction of site index at a reference age are imperative in an...
