The varying effects of the different types of fires encountered in the longleaf pine region are discussed by a man of long practical experience in the southern pine region. Summer fires are formal to be more destructive than winter fires. Height growth of young trees may be halved the year following a fire but its normal rate may be resumed in the second or third year. The author shows how a private owner may make simple investigations to determine the effect of fire on his timber.
