The Forest Service's Southern Research Station is directing its work toward loblolly pine, the most commercially important forest tree in the Southern United States. While this species grows on nearly 29 million acres in humid, warm temperate regions from eastern Texas to the Valley and Ridge Provinces of the Appalachian Highlands, forests on Coastal Plain sediments are the most important. Research is underway on sites that include excessively drained sands in Texas, medium-textured sites in Louisiana and Mississippi, and poorly-drained sites in North Carolina.
