Plum Creek Timber Company, Inc. is a timberland owner and manager, as well as a forest products, mineral extraction, and property development company. It is the largest private landowner in the United States. It is headquartered in Suite 3100 at 601 Union Street in Seattle.Plum Creek was spun off from Burlington Resources as a master limited partnership on June 8, 1989. Burlington Resources was created from the Burlington Northern railroad's natural resources holdings in 1988. Plum Creek Timber is heir to some of the 47 million acres of timberland originally granted by the federal government to the Northern Pacific Railway in the 1860s, and most of Burlington's lands were originally purchased, or otherwise acquired as timberland. The MLP converted to a real estate investment trust on July 1, 1999 in order to obtain tax and accounting advantages available to real estate developers.Plum Creek Timber produces a line of softwood lumber products, including common and select boards, studs, edge-glued boards, and finger-jointed studs. These products are targeted to domestic lumber retailers, such as retail home centers, for use in repair and remodeling projects. These products are also sold to stocking distributors for use in home construction. The company also does mineral extraction, natural gas production, and deals with communication and transportation rights of way. As of December 31, 2004, the company owned and managed approximately 7.8 million acres of timber lands in the northwest, southern, and northeast U.S., as well as owned and operated 10 wood product conversion facilities in the northwest U.S. Wikipedia.

Application of nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P) to midrotation loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L. ) stands is a common silvicultural practice used to increase crop-tree volume production in the western Gulf Coastal Plain of Arkansas and Louisiana. Studies in other regions have shown that midrotation herbicide application, with or without an application of fertilizer, can also benefit crop-tree growth. We studied the impact of herbicide (16 oz of imazapyr with 3. 2 oz of surfactant ac-1), fertilizer (200 lb of N and 35 lb of P ac-1), and a combined herbicide-fertilizer treatment on pine crop tree and competing woody vegetation growth in three, thinned midrotation stands for 5 years. The density and basal area of woody competition was significantly reduced (73-78%) with an application of imazapyr, but was not affected by fertilization. The application of imazapyr inhibited height growth of the pine crop trees and without an application of fertilizer had little impact on basal area or volume growth during the 5-year measurement period. Fertilizer application increased merchantable volume growth (21. 5-25. 1 ft3 ac -1 yr-1), but response was low compared to that reported for loblolly pine stands elsewhere in the southern United States. Fertilization increased mortality of smaller, less vigorous pine trees. The combined herbicide-fertilizer resulted in a 20. 5% increase in chip-n-saw volume, suggesting that the larger, more vigorous trees in these stands respond most rapidly to the combined herbicide and fertilizer treatments.
