Description: Sediment loss and nutrient cpncentrations in runoff were evaluated to determine the effects of site preparation burning on a recently harvested loblolly pine (Pinur taeda L.) site in east Texas. Sediment and nutrient losses prior to treatment were approximately the same from control plots and pretreatment burn plots. Nutrient analysis of runoff samples indicated that the prescribed burn caused increased losses of N, P, K, Ca, and Mg f&n treatment plots. Preliminary results indicate a significant increase in sediment concentration and sediment loss following the prescribed burning application. The data indicate a gradual decline in sediment loss and nutrient concentration over time corn treatment plots with respect to control plots. Sediment loss following treatment was within the range of sediment loss for an undisturbed forest in the south.
