Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: Repeated prescribed fire is a valuable tool for the management of longleaf and loblolly pine. When applied every two to ten years, for example, prescribed fire perpetuates existing longleaf pine ecosystems (Outcalt 1997). Furthermore, the acceptance of fire as a management tool, together with recent improvements in longleaf pine regeneration methods have aided efforts to restore longleaf pine to its natural range (Outcalt 1997, Landers et al. 1995). Low-intensity, prescribed fire every two to five years is also commonly used to manage loblolly pine on public and non-industrial, private land to reduce understory fuel and stimulate the development of wildlife browse.
