Intensive mechanical and chemical treatments were used annually for 12 years to eradicate hardwoods from a selectively managed loblolly (Pinus taeda L.)/shortleaf (P. echinata Mill.) pine stand in south Arkansas. Although temporarily effective, a succession of indigenous shrubs and trees followed the cessation of eradication treatments. Improved pine diameter distribution from natural regeneration and an increase in radial growth of overstory pines were the benefits of this temporary hardwood eradication.
