Title: Mortality among Seed Trees in Longleaf Pine Shelterwood Stands

Author: Boyer, William D.;

Date: 1970

Source: Southern Journal of Applied Forestry

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: Mortality of longieaf pine (Pinus palustris Mill.) seed trees was recorded in 27 regeneration areas ranging from North Carolina to Louisiana. Annual mortality averaged 0.7 percent before, and 1.9 percent after a seed cut reduced stand density to about 30 square feet of basal area per acre. On a per-acre basis, however, annual losses averaged 0.4 tree both before and after cutting. Yearly mortality of 0.2 tree par acre or less was recorded for more than half of all observations.
