Prescribed Burning in Relation to Grazing in the Longleaf-Slash Pine Type
Abstract:This article is based on studies during the past four years at the Alapaha Experimental Range in the Georgia Coastal Plain.2 It presents further evidence that fire improves forest range but must be skillfully used if grazing and timber management are to be effectively fitted together. The timber on this area is mainly second-growth longleaf pine and slash pine; the principal forage species are wiregrasses.
