Currently, I am working on developing a growth and yield system for naturally regenerated southern hardwoods. I am also involved in the study examining the effects of climatic variables on the growth and productivity of loblolly pines of the Western Gulf, US. My previous research investigated the challenges associated with efficient forest products supply chain, especially trucking.
