Demand for value-added forest products and an abundance of unused small-diameter timber have created interest in structural uses for small-diameter timber. This study examined indicators of small-diameter loblolly pine tree taper in the Duke Forest on the North Carolina Piedmont, so that managers can more easily evaluate the potential for applications.

Abstract:
Loblolly pine and sycamore show the most promise so far of trees that might be grown in North Carolina specifically for energy. Dr. Douglas J. Frederick of North Carolina State University spent five years evaluating tree growth and energy potential. This article discusses Frederick’s project and the potential to establish experimental wood-energy plantations.
