Congratulations to Thomas Patterson and Lindsay Cummings for their paper “Longleaf pine (Pinus palustris Mill.) morphology and climate/growth responses along a physiographic gradient in North Carolina” published in the April 2016 issue (68: 239-248) of The Professional Geographer. The paper discusses how tree height, trunk diameter and needle length of longleaf pine are significantly different between stands located in the coastal plain, sandhill, and piedmont physiographic provinces in North Carolina and how these morphological variances may affect reforestation efforts. Great work Tommy and Lindsay!
