Regenerating Slash Pine Naturally Without Suppression
Abstract:Following a good seedling catch, slash pine overstories were reduced to 0, 5, 10, and 20 trees per acre. Retaining 10 or 20 trees for 18 years significantly reduced reproduction height, diameter, and volume growth compared to plots with no trees. Volume increment loss was not offset by growth of the residual stand.
