How to control the brown-spot needle blight, is one of the pressing silvicultural problems in the longleaf pine region. The disease seriously retards rate of growth during the seedling stage, and under certain conditions may exterminate otherwise excellent reproduction. The author, after several years of painstaking investigation, during which he has systematically compared burned with unburned areas of similar character, confirms the recommendations of certain foresters that controlled winter burning at three-season intervals, until height growth begins, is a beneficial silvicultural measure.
