Title: Prescribed Burning and Direct-Seeding Old Clearcuts in the Piedmont

Author: McNab, W. Henry;

Date: 1976

Source: Res. Note SE-229. Asheville, NC: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Southeastern Forest Experiment Station. 4 p.

Publication Series: Research Note (RN)

Description: Logging slash 14 to 26 months old was burned at different seasons of the year in the Georgia Piedmont.The following winter, loblolly pine seeds were broadcast 1 to 13 months after burning. Burning 1 -year-old slash during early- or mid-growing season resulted in better stocking, greater height growth, and more effective hardwood control than burning during the dorm ant season.Both growing-season and dormant-season burns were more effective for seedbed preparation than no burning.
