Pine Growth and Regeneration Following Three Hardwood Control Treatments
Abstract:Hardwood control studies in Southeast Texas indicated that prescribed burning and mist blowing effectively reduced the number of small hardwoods. Mist blowing also reduced existing small pine regeneration. Injection satisfactorily killed 87 percent of the ring-porous hardwoods and 49 percent of the diffuse-porous hardwoods. All treatments resulted in marked increases of radial growth of residual pine. New pine regeneration was increased by all treatments, with burning and mist blowing exhibiting the greatest response.
