    Description

    A thorough vegetation inventory was made on loblolly-shortleaf pine-hardwood stands scheduled by forest industry for clearcutting, site preparation, and planting to pine in north central Louisiana and southern Arkansas. Overstory timber, on the average, contained about equal proportions of softwood and hardwood basal area. Browse plants ranged from 5,500 to over 70,000 per acre, with about 60 to 70 percent desirable for deer. Herbage production averaged 180 pounds per acre on silty soil, but less than 75 pounds per acre on loamy, gravelly and clayey soils. Of the 777 plant species encountered, none were listed as endangered or threatened.
