Improvement of the productivity of the badly depleted forests of the Missouri Ozarks constitutes an important economic and silvicultural problem. A promising approach to its solution is by increasing the proportion of shortleaf pine in the forest cover. The results of a 5-year study on the effects of seed supply, methods of ground treatment, and reduction of overstory on the establishment and growth of pine seedlings are presented in this paper. The author concludes that a scant seed supply and competition by overstory trees are primarily responsible for the low rate of natural regeneration, and makes certain recommendations for its improvement.
