Management of Loblolly Pine

The following comments on Professor Chapman's bulletin on loblolly pine 1 are published as a contribution to our knowledge of the management of that species and also of the basic principles of forest management in general. The statement by Messrs. Bull and Reynolds was originally submitted as a review and was later expanded into the form of an article at the suggestion of the editor. It questions certain of the author's conclusions and recommendations with respect to controlled burning, selective cutting, and thinning, and stresses particularly the need for further study of these problems. Professor Chapman in his reply holds his ground and contends that research, however desirable, should not be permitted to delay the application of methods of management already demonstrated by observation, experiments, and common sense to be sound. Mr. Pearson, in a more general discussion of the bulletin, emphasizes the importance of full stocking and the advantages of intensive forest practice not only with loblolly pine in the South but with all species in all regions.
