Effects of Clearcutting Understory Hardwoods on the Growth of a Shortleaf-Virginia Pine Stand
Abstract:The adverse effects of hardwoods on reproduction of pine are now well proven. An allied question is whether a pine stand benefits in growth from the removal of understory hardwoods. Eleven-year results on an experiment in a pine stand typical of the Tennessee Valley area indicate a negative answer to this question.
