    In this age of machine planting and airplane seedint, forest regeneration by self-sown seeds ( natural regenration) is seldom in the limelight. The notion is prevalent that our future forests will be largely spewed forth from the rear of an airplane or set out in precise rows by machine. Perhaps this is so. However, before we rocket off to explore the forests of another planet, let us dwell for a moment on the possibilities of natural regeneration on at least some of our southern pinelands. This may be a good idea in the face of some retrenchment and cost-cutting now current in many southern forestry operations.
