In the 3 years following two methods of timber harvest, two intensities of site preparation, and planting of pines, yields of desirable forage plants increased four to sevenfold on flatwoods of north Florida. Vegetation on two watersheds was measured before clearcutting of pine stands and 1, 2, and 3 years after site preparation and planting. Woody competition remained suppressed after 3 years and forage yields averaged 1,400 lb/ac. The fear that site preparation for planting pines depletes forage appears to be unfounded.
