Description: Prescribed burning in midspring may stimulate height growth of longleaf pine seedlings. Seedlings were planted on sandy and clayey sites that were prescribed burned 2 years later. Treatments were cool, moderate, and hot burns and an unburned control. The hot, May burn significantly increased height growth of seedlings on the sandy site. The number of seedlings with 50 percent or more brown-spot infection was reduced on both sites after the fires, and the hot and moderate burns were better than the cool burn.
Keywords: Pinus palustris Mill., brown-spot needle blight, Scirrhia acicola, planting
