The Initiation and Early Stages of Research on Natural Reforestation of Longleaf Pine
Abstract:The natural reproduction of longleaf pine has been under investigation for a period of thirty-three years at Urania, Louisiana. This review brings out many of the difficulties encountered and emphasizes the need for drastic measures to maintain this valuable southern tree. The conclusions are believed applicable throughout the range of longleaf pine. With the general acceptance of controlled burning as a means of reducing forest fuel as well as of preparing conditions for reproduction, the future outlook for longleaf pine should be brighter than the last three decades would indicate. Five simple rules are presented for care of longleaf pine lands during the reproductive period.
