Description: The increase in acreage treated with growing-season fire during the past decade indicates that there has been increased interest in burning to enhance southern pine forest health and diversity. Information on how bum dates within the growing season can be manipulated to vary the mix of species is of practical importance. The objective of this study was to determine the response of herbaceous and woody plants to eight, 3-week treatment application windows during a biennial growing-season bum cycle at the Piedmont National Wildlife Refuge in Georgia, USA. Early results indicate other environmental factors, particularly lack of precipitation, had a greater impact on vegetation than prescribed burning.
