Influence of Professional Foresters on Pine Regeneration in the South
Abstract:Investments in pine regeneration on nonindustrial private holdings increase markedly when professional foresters are retained by landowners. Regeneration investments were reported on 63% of the harvested southern acres assisted by professionals as compared to just 12% that were not professionally assisted. Regrettably, professional foresters consulted on less than 40% of the land harvested, suggesting a key to improving pine productivity in the South is extending professional forestry assistance to the owners of more southern acres. Redirecting the efforts of public foresters in the South is suggested as a means to accomplish that goal.
