Pine Regeneration Success of a Private Nonindustrial Land Owner on the South Caroline Coast
Abstract:Between 1940 and 1964 Bernard M. and Belle W. Baruch did regeneration cuts (residuals of less than 50 ft²/ac) on 3,700 acres of pine forest on Hobcaw Barony. By 1975 pine regeneration was adequate on only 1,400 acres. Loblolly pine was successfully established only on well-drained sites along the edges of the peninsula. Pines were not regenerated by seed tree cutting and periodic burning on the poorly drained soils characteristic of the center of interstream divides. Proper understory control was more important as drainage decreased. Land owners on the lower coastal plain should be aware that understory control is vital to success of natural regeneration on poorly drained lands. South. J. Appl. For. 13(1):25-28.
