Title: Growing season burns for control of hardwoods in longleaf pine stands

Author: Boyer, William D.;

Date: 1990

Source: Res. Pap. SO-256. New Orleans, LA: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Southern Forest Experiment Station. 7 p.

Publication Series: Research Paper (RP)

Description: Summer fires in existing longleaf pine stands carry undue risk of pine mortality. One summer fire caused as much mortality among pines in the l- through 4-inch d.b.h. classes as two successive summer fires among hardwoods of the same size. Mortality among mature pines was also excessive. Hardwood top-kill following a spring fire seemed affected more by fire intensity than by timing of the fire.

Keywords: Hardwood control, Pinus palustris Mill., prescribed fire.
