    Description

    The selection silvicultural system as practiced in stands of the major southern pines is briefly reviewed and the past and present role of prescribed burning in each is discussed. A detailed discussion is given of the burning practices in uneven-aged stands of longleaf (Pinus palustris) in which repeated fire is both highly effective and nearly essential as a management tool. A promising scheme to adapt cyclical burning to the management of other less fine-adapted pine species under selection management is discuseed along with a sketch of research and pilot testing needed to bring such a scheme into practice.
