Spacing Studies in Pinus Kesiya Royle ex Gordon in Zambia, by A.S. Hans, Zambia Journal of Science and Technology, Vol.4, no.2, October 1979, Pg. 36-44.


The espacement trial 2p/7/6 of Pinus Kesiya Royle ex Gordon in Zambia at the age of 7-8 years is analysed. The height and diameter growth increased as spacing became wider whereas overall volume and weight of wood per hectare decreased sharply. Basic wood density increased in wider spacings. Fibre length was negatively correlated to diameter in narrower spacings but exhibited positive correlation in wider spacings.
