DescriptionThere is not enough pine reproduction in the woodlands of southern New Jersey. This increasingly important problem, which plagues the state's Pine Region, is especially severe where seed sources for natural regeneration are poor. In some of these areas, pulpwood cuttings have removed all pines large enough to bear many cones. In other areas, wildfires have killed or damaged the seed source. If such sites are to support productive forest growth in the near future, more pine seedlings must be established through planting or direct seeding.
