    Description

    Littleleaf disease is the most significant disease of shortleaf pine and has decimated shortleaf pine forests in the Piedmont region of the Southeast. This study used the littleleaf disease hazard soil rating method to evaluate the littleleaf hazard of Piedmont sites owned by Auburn University in the Auburn, Alabama area. The results indicate that a few of these stands are suitable for shortleaf pine management. Furthermore, soil cores were an accurate replacement for soil profiles, and soil series descriptions from the NRCS soil survey were not adequate for remotely assessing a site’s littleleaf disease hazard.
