Loblolly-Shortleaf Pine Seedfall in Louisiana
Abstract:Seed production fluctuated widely within and between two nearby loblolly-shortleaf pine stands in north-central Louisiana over a five-year period, but together the stands produced seven good crops out of ten. Seasonal distribution of seedfall was similar in both stands each year, and it followed trends established for both species in other parts of their range. The proportion of sound seed was correlated directly with the size of the seed crop.
