Southern pine seedling silvical requirements for early survival and growth are examined in relation to physical and chemical properties of soils of the southeastern United States. Because of its influence on almost every plant process, soil moisture is the factor of greatest concern. Solar radiation is also critical in the first years because of intense competition for light by seedlings and competing vegetation. The importance of soil aeration is also commonly realized, especially in the coastal plain. However, the threshold soil oxygen levels for survival and growth are not known. With an understanding of the silvics of southern pine, foresters can improve seedling genotype and site-preparation prescriptions to maximize seedling survival and early growth on each soil type.
