Table 2 Silvicultural treatments in the 1987 silviculture-breeds experiments

From: Effects of site, silviculture and seedlot on wood density and estimated wood stiffness in radiata pine at mid-rotation

Treatment Stand density (stems ha-1) Crown remaining after pruning (m) Outer plot size (ha) Inner plot size (ha) No. of trees3
  Initial Post-thinning2     
1 250 or 5001 100 4 0.324 0.196 98
2 1000 400 4 0.081 0.049 49
3 500 500 No pruning 0.162 0.098 49
  1. 1Initial stand density was 500 stems ha-1 at Woodhill, Tahorakuri and Glengarry.
  2. 2Thinning was carried out at a mean stand height of approximately 6.2 m.
  3. 3Number of trees in inner permanent sample plot before thinning.
