DescriptionWhen Virginia pine (Pinus virginiana Mill.) is logged, even in pure stands, its natural regeneration is not readily achieved. This is because the species is intolerant and commonly functions in nature as a transitory pioneer; hardwoods become established under its canopy and tend to dominate the reproduction after the pine is cut. Experience indicates that the most practicable harvesting method for perpetuation of the pine is some form of clear cutting.
