Title: Forage production after hardwood control in a southern pine-hardwood stand

Author: Blair, Robert M.;

Date: 1971

Source: Forest Science. 17(3): 279-284

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: After hardwoods were removed from an all-aged pine-hardwood stand in central Louisiana, herbage available in late summer increased for 2 to 4 years, then declined rapidly as the density and growth of pine seedlings increased. Browse production increased for 6 to 8 years, but together with herbage produciton returned to pretreatment levels within 10 years. Competition from natural pine regeneration prevented long-term increases in forage biomass.

Keywords: Pinus taeda, Pinus echinata, Quercus stellata, animal nutrition, biomass, browse, herbage, hardwoods
