Stand Density Index (SDI) is used to help determine if a pine planation is in need of thinning. Pine Thin uses the average number of trees per acre and the average diameter at breast height (DBH) of trees in your plantation to determine if a thinning is needed. Specific density management diagrams have been developed for each of the four major southern pine species (loblolly pine, shortleaf pine, longleaf pine, and slash pine).
