Over the last 50 years, cooperative research on planted southern pine management among SE U.S. universities, government agencies, and forest industry has developed and facilitated the widespread implementation of improved genetic and silvicultural technology. The impact of the regional research cooperatives is difficult to overstate, with current members managing 55% of . In some regions, such as the Central United States, periodic winter cold events are likely to become more extreme under a future climate (Kim et al. ) and threaten livestock produc tion. Low temperatures, especially when combined with wind, decrease livestock production efficiency by requiring greater feed intake to maintain body temperature.

Forest growth and yield models are tools designed to provide forest managers with quantitative information on plantation development dynamics, the influence of various silvicultural manipulations like vegetation control, thinning, and fertilization, and the potential quantity and quality of forest by: 2.
Sweetgum is a unique species in North America and has been separated from it relatives for many thousands of years. In its current ecosystem spanning over much of the eastern United States and into Central America, the species thrives. The species rapid growth rate and adaptability on many sites poises both promise and problems for forest Cited by: 3.

The amount of biomass produced between clones planted in (P = ) and (P = ) differed the end of the year growing season for the planting, the total amount of biomass production of the NM6 clone was Mg ha −1, which is almost similar to the biomass production of the same clone in previous by: In the near future, wood from the km 2 of pine plantations in the southern United States could provide much of the feedstock for emerging bioenergy industries.
Research and operational experience show that total plantation biomass productivity exceeding Mg ha −1 y −1 green weight basis with rotations less than 25 years are biologically possible, financially attractive, Cited by: Global environmental and economic concerns about fossil fuel consumption have prompted interest in producing alternative fuels from renewable materials.
Growing crops dedicated as energy feedstocks could increase biofuel production capacity with relatively minimal adverse environmental impacts.
Highly productive energy crops can minimize land area requirements. We simulated landscape change from to under five scenarios of woody biomass production for wood pellets and liquid biofuels in North Carolina, in the southeastern United States, a region.
Because greater forage quality yields greater deer growth and productivity and intensively managed pine forests are common in the southeastern United States, forest managers would benefit from an. Using baseline scenarios, the U.S.
