DescriptionDrastic reductions in longleaf pine (Pinus palustris Mill.) acreage have led to an increased focus on regeneration of the longleaf pine ecosystem. Many areas require artificial regeneration for establishment, and site preparation techniques may be implemented to increase regeneration success. The objectives of this study were to determine differences in growth of first-year longleaf pine seedlings based on various site preparation treatments and to determine differences in microsite conditions (available light, soil moisture, soil temperature, competition) due to site preparation treatments.
