Table 6 The overall rates of growth, and rates of growth on days when growth occurred, for the various treatments at each site

From: Growth at the microscale: long term thinning effects on patterns and timing of intra-annual stem increment in radiata pine

Site Thinning treatment Mean overall growth rate (mm2∙day−1) Mean growth rate on “growth days” (mm2∙day−1) Ratio of GD growth: Overall growth
Flynn Thinned 32 ± 3.62 45.2 ± 5.61 1.4
Unthinned 8 ± 0.09 34.2 ± 5.99 4.3
Mt Gambier Thinned twice 19.3 ± 4.36 26.8 ± 2.74 1.4
Thinned once 26 ± 4.7 37.5 ± 5.55 1.4
Never thinned 11.9 ± 0.91 23.5 ± 2.25 2
