Abstract:

Carbon density was measured in longleaf pine stands across the range to directly quantify ecosystem carbon pools and calibrate and validate longleaf pine carbon models. An even-aged longleaf pine model which enables simulation of scenarios for young planted stands being managed for transition toward uneven-aged structures with silvicultural tools such as thinning and prescribed fire was developed and linked to a modified single-tree-based longleaf pine model which enables simulation of older stands which are managed with silvicultural tools such as single tree or group selection harvests and prescribed fire.
