Effect of Single Fires on the Diameter Growth of Shortleaf Pine in the Southern Appalachians
Abstract:The effect of fire on tree growth has long been a subject of interest to foresters and others. Studies on the Bent Creek Experimental Forest, North Carolina, in an old-field stand of shortleaf pine and in an uneven-aged pine-oak mixture, burned respectively in 1925 and 1930, do not indicate that single fires reduced the growth on the burned areas as compared with that on adjacent unburned areas.
