Six intensities of site preparation ranging from an untreated check to shearing, rootraking, burning, fertilizing, and applying herbicide were applied to replicated 2-ac (0.81 ha) plots on a Piedmont site in central Georgia. Survival, height, and diameter growth of loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L.) were measured for 5 years after planting. All treatments improved survival and growth when compared to the check. Mechanical treatments yielded good growth and survival, and additional benefits were obtained from weed control and ammonium nitrate application. South. J. Appl. For. 14(1):3-6.
