Title: Development of Longleaf Pine Seedlings Under Parent Trees

Author: Boyer, William D.;

Date: 1963

Source: Res. Pap. SO-4. New Orleans, LA: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Southern Forest Experiment Station. 5 p.

Publication Series: Research Paper (RP)

Description: In southwest Alabama, unburned seedlings under overstories ranging up to 90 square feet of basal area per acre survived as well as those with no tree competition. After 7 years, milacre stocking averaged 99 percent and survival 72 percent. Growth, but not survival, improved with distance from parent trees. Seedlings under tree crowns had less brown spot than those in the open.
