Most Soil Bank Plantings in the South Have Been Retained; Some Need Follow-Up Treatments
Abstract:Observations from 91 pine plantations in Georgia, Mississippi, and South Carolina approximate the current status of 1.7 million acres planted in the South through the Conservation Reserve phase of the Soil Bank Program. Planted trees are growing on 89 percent of the original Soil Bank acreage, with a large majority of the acreage well stocked. Incidence of fusiform rust (Cronartium fusiforme) and pine overstocking indicate timber production could be enhanced through follow-up treatments.
