    Description

    To prevent cut stumps of 4- to 7-year-old slash (Pinus elliotiii Engelm.) and loblolly (f. taeda L.) pines from resprouting, precommercial thinnings should be done in late summer at 6 inches or less above the groundline. For shortleaf pine (P. echinata Mill.), late summer and 6 inches or less appears safe but should be delayed at least until age 5 years.
