DescriptionIn the Virginia Coastal Plain, the effects of disking and of three series of prescribed burns on crown coverage and height of regenerating loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L.) and competing hardwoods and shrubs were compared after 6 years. One winter burn followed by three annual summer burns just before harvesting was the site preparation most effective in reducing hardwood competition. Space not occupied by sprouting hardwoods and shrubs was captured by pine regeneration.
