DescriptionForest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) data indicate that pine cover types comprise 41 percent of the total forest land in Florida, Georgia, South Carolina. North Carolina, and Virginia. Of these, 12.7 million acres are planted and 22.0 million acres are naturally regenerated. Many of these pine stands contain considerable amounts of hardwood. Understanding the dynamics of growth in these stands therefore requires knowledge of pine-hardwood interactions. Information is provided on the hardwood component within natural and planted stands of loblolly and slash pine, as well as natural stands of longleaf, pond, shortleaf, and Virginia pine on both Coastal Plain and Piedmont sites in the Southeast.
