DescriptionResearch on managing red pine has been ongoing for some time and management guides that incorporate information resulting from this research such as Buckman's (1962) Growth and Yield of Red Pine in Minnesota and Benzie's (1977) Manager's Handbook for Red Pine have been widely applied. Despite this extensive knowledge base, critical information needs remain. Additional information about growth and yield, especially under managed conditions, is needed. Alternatives to single species and even-aged management are needed in which red pine is a component in forests consisting of multiple species and multiple cohorts. Red pine management needs to be considered within the broader spatial context of the landscape, and even at regional and global scales. And finally, much remains to be learned about the natural regeneration of red pine.
