2 EP What is the optimum pine management regime? - Species espacement (planting density) trial : - 26 installations - (Pl, Sx/Sw, Lw, Fdi) - 500, 1000, 1500, 2000, 2500 sph trees /plot x 3 reps / site (CRBD) 2

3 Treatment number Treatment (trees/ha) Intertree distance (m) Plot size (ha)

4 Lodgepole pine 12 sites total Only years old ( ) Example: 20 years after establishment at Crow Creek –

5 EP – Lodgepole pine Crow Creek - Nadina Forest District  SBS mc2 / 01 (Sx, Pl, Bl)  970 m elevation  Lodgepole pine planted 1987  Fill planted mortality (88-91)  Brushed & ingress removed 1997  5-20 year data (1992, 1997, 2001, 2006) Johnstone and van Thienen (2011, in press) 5

6 EP – Lodgepole pine - diameter growth Johnstone and van Thienen (2011, in press) 6

7 EP – Lodgepole pine - height growth 500 tph Johnstone and van Thienen (2011, in press) 7

8 EP – Lodgepole pine Individual tree total volume Stand total volume Johnstone and van Thienen (2011, in press) 8

9 EP – Lodgepole pine Installation # 6 (Nadina) Effects of espacement after 20 years: No effect on height, periodic height growth, % survival Significant effect on all other tree and per hectare values Crown size DBH Volume (tree & stand) 9
