Description: Response of newly established slash pine to fertilization is increased if herbaceous plants are controlled. To find the amount of cultivation required in Louisiana, fertilized and unfertilized rows of planted pines were hand-hoed in a wedge-shaped pattern. By using this technique, the amount of cultivation was varied from none to complete. Slash pine growth was linearly related to amount of cultivation for both fertilized and unfertilized trees. Pine response to cultivation or fertilization was much greater when both cultural practices were applied.
Keywords: Weed control, tree form, herbaceous competition
