Pine Plantations on the Cross Timbers Area of Oklahoma
Abstract:Five pine species were planted on the "Cross Timbers" area of Oklahoma to determine the possibility of species conversion on these low-quality hardwood areas. Site preparation was accomplished by aerial spraying and prescribed burning. Early results indicate that during years of adequate moisture loblolly (Pinus taeda), shortleaf (Pinus echinata), and Virginia pine (Pinus virginiana) will survive and grow well on these areas. Pinus brutia and Pinus pinaster did not survive well.
