Glaze storms often do extensive damage to forests. It has long been known that different kinds of trees vary in their resistance to such damage. A glaze storm in Georgia in 1940 offered an excellent opportunity to observe slash, longleaf, and loblolly pine for differences in resistance to damage, in extent of recovery, and in final loss. Loblolly pine, in general, was least affected by the storm.
