Hand Planting Loblolly Pine


Planting increase timber growth with a healthier faster growing tree. A landowner can reforest either by natural regeneration or seedling planting depending on the objective of the land. A common practice is to plant genetically improved seedlings on cut over land or open fields which will increase the rate of timber growth. Planting can be done by hand or mechanically.

The fact is, mother nature will produce around 50-60 mature trees per acre in a hardwood stand at about 60-70 years of age. After stands have been harvested and reforested with geneticaly improved Loblolly Pine trees after 35-40 years of age the stand will produce 110-120 trees per acre of mature sawtimber trees.
