The large increase in cone crops often observed on loblolly pine trees isolated by cutting suggested that releasing selected trees from direct competition several years before a scheduled reproduction cutting might make ample quantities of seed available immediately after cutting, improving the chances of satisfactory regeneration. In this study the response of such released trees in flower bud formation was immediate, marked, and protracted, and their seed production was judged sufficient to regenerate a stand satisfactorily.
