Title: Prescribed Burning For Laurel and Rhodendron Control in the Southern appalachians

Description: Prescribed fire shows promise as a tool for the control of laurel and rhododendron in the Southern Appalachian mountains. A recent prescribed fire killed the tops of 70 percent of ail laurel under 0.5 inch d.b.h. and 70 percent of the rhododendron under 1 inch d.b.h. Seventeen months after the bum, almost all of the top-killed laurel and rhododendron have resprouted; but many of the white pine planted after the burn will also survive.
