Abstract:

The primary purpose of the publication is to provide interested state, private, and Federal agencies the most complete and up-to-date information ever assembled on the specific gravity of the four major southern pines--loblolly Pinus taeda, shortleaf P. echinata, longleaf P. palustris, and slash P. elliottii, pine. In this report specific gravity is given for clear wood obtained on the basis of green volume and ovendry weight. The specific gravity data were summarized from extensive sampling in 11 southern states--extending from the Atlantic Coast westward to about the 96th meridian in Oklahoma and Texas.
