Title: Fire effects in northeastern forests: jack pine.

Author: Rouse, Cary;

Date: 1986

Source: General Technical Report NC-106. St. Paul, MN: U.S. Dept. of Agriculture, Forest Service, North Central Forest Experiment Station

Publication Series: General Technical Report (GTR)

Description: The jack pine ecosystem has evolved through fire. Jack pine, although easily killed by fire, has developed serotinous cones that depend upon high heat to open and release the seeds. Without a fire to enable the cones to open, jack pine would be replaced by another species. Prescribed fire can be an economical management tool for site preparation in either a natural or artificial regeneration system.

Keywords: Pinus banksiana, jack pine, fire ecology, silviculture
