After protection from fire and cutting for 25 years, a 70-year-old loblolly-shortleaf pine-hardwood stand in east Texas is evolving into an oak-hickory-sweetgum community. Hardwoods form an almost complete cover beneath the now dominant pines. Pine reproduction is virtually lacking. Desirable deer browse plants are prevalent, but many are beyond reach. High-value livestock forage species are scarce. Selective elimination of undesirable hardwoods and prescribed burning to control the sprouts would favor pine regeneration and improve game habitat.
