DescriptionFirst-year density and quadrat stocking of naturally established loblolly and shortleaf pine regeneration were monitored forfive consecutive seedyearson disturbed and undisturbed seedbeds. Compared to untreatedchecks,additional gainsin pine seedling density as a result of exposing mineral soil were not as great as initial gains achieved by control of overtopping hardwoods.
