Abstract:Professor Chapman has long studied the influence of fire on the reproduction of longleaf pine. In this article he distinguishes between (1) burning preceding seeding and subsequent complete or periodic protection and (2) complete protection before and after seeding. His experiments convince him that the ground must be freed of competing material prior to seed fall by means of fire but that annual burning subsequent to seeding is highly detrimental. His experiments on intermittent burning and protection at two- to three-year intervals after seeding and prior to the start of height growth are not completed, but they indicate some value in bringing about conditions favorable to healthy height growth.
