    After hardwoods were removed from an all-aged pine-hardwood stand in central Louisiana, herbage available in late summer increased for 2 to 4 years, then declined rapidly as the density and growth of pine seedlings increased. Browse production increased for 6 to 8 years, but together with herbage produciton returned to pretreatment levels within 10 years. Competition from natural pine regeneration prevented long-term increases in forage biomass.
