Loblolly Pines for the Landscape

Record #:
The loblolly pine accounts for 50% of timber production in the Southeast. It is marketed as yellow and is prized for both lumber and pulpwood. Wood reports on a 1960s' program of the North Carolina State University Department of Forestry--the Tree Improvement Program--which sought to produce new and improved pine trees for the timber industry. One of the results was a smaller, slower growing loblolly pine for commercial use.
