Title: Bottomland Hardwoods Research on Site Preparation, Planation Establishment, and Cultural Treatments, at the Southern Hardwoods Laboratory

Author: Kennedy, Harvey E.;

Date: 1980

Publication Series: Paper (invited, offered, keynote)

Description: The South contains about 219 million acres of forests, 70 million acres of which are most productive when managed as hardwoods. Bottomland hardwoods cover about 22 million of this 70 million acres. Hardwood plantation management has been increasing during the last few years, but natural stand management still accounts for more than 99 percent of hardwood production in the South. This paper summarizes research and experience at the Southern Hardwoods Laboratory that have solved some of the problems in plantation management. Proper site selection, good site preparation and cultivation, high quality seedlings, and proper planting techniques are musts if hardwood plantations are to be successful. Planting large seedlings may reduce costs of site preparation and cultivation, as well as get more desirable seedlings into an area.
