Slash Pine Regeneration Under Regulated Grazing
Abstract:Neither light nor moderate grazing by cattle (33 and 47 percent utilization) affected establishment of planted or seeded pines or survival to age 5 years. Heavy grazing (56 percent utilization) of plantings resulted in 124 fewer trees per acre than on the ungrazed control, with the losses well distributed. Survival of seeded stands was unaffected by heavy utilization. Grazing had no clearcut effect on height growth of pines to age 5.
