Site-Preparation Techniques for Establishing Natural Pine Regeneration on Small Forest Properties
Abstract:Lightweight mechanical equipment, prescribed fire, herbicides, and handtools were used in various combinations to site-prepare small brush-filled openings within uneven-aged loblolly-shortleaf (Pinus taeda L.-P. echinata Mill.) pine stands in southern Arkansas. All treatments were effective in facilitating establishment of pine seedlings from natural seedfall when compared to untreated controls. Treatments tested in this study should have practical application on small forest properties. South. J. Appl. For. 11(1):41-45.
