Title: Scheduling prescribed burns for hazard reduction in the southeast
Author: Sackett, Stephen S.;
Source: Journal of Forestry
Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)
Description: Twelve-year studies in the southeastern Coastal Plain revealed that pine stands should be burned every three years to reduce natural fuels and thus forestall damage from possible wildfires. Rates of overstory growth were not significantly different in burned and unburned stands. Guidelines for prescribed burning of pine stands in this region are presented.
