In a 65-year-old shortleaf pine (Pinus echinata Mill.) and hardwood stand, hardwoods were felled and left lying at the stump or removed with a whole-tree harvest system. In the 5 years after treatment, residual pines responded in basal area growth to both removal and felling, but there was no significant difference in response between the two treatments. Magnitude of response was related to crown class and pretreatment growth. South. J. Appl. For. 12(4):262-263.
