Abstract:In this pine plantation in central Louisiana, the yield of bluestem forage grasses more than doubled within three seasons after scrub hardwoods were controlled. Under well-managed grazing, the increase in forage can repay most of the cost of hardwood control before the pines reach merchantable size.
