    Description

    Shortleaf pine (Pinus echinata Mill.) is found throughout the South and is the second most important southern pine. The area of shortleaf stands has been declining in recent decades and shortleaf pine growing-stock volume decreases are expected in the near future. Shortleaf's decline is the result of management preferences for other pine species and reductions in the area of cutover land and retired agricultural land, once common sources of shortleaf pine acreage in the South. Shortleaf pine management should continue as an important option in regions where other pine species do poorly and on nonindustrial forests.
