    Description

    Prescribed winter burning was done in a precommercially thinned, 9-year-old, natural stand of loblolly and shortleaf pines (Pinus taeda L. and P. echinata Mill.). Growth and survival of 174 loblolly pines were monitored one growing season after this burning. Mortality was highest for pines with less than 2 inches groundline diameter or pines that were less than 8 feet tall. Diameter and height growth during the year after burning showed statistically significant, negative correlations with increasing crown scorch.
