    Description

    Abstract - Compared with untreated checks, manual hardwood control and herbicide injection of hardwoods facilitated the development of direct seeded shortleaf pine (Pinus echinata Mill.) regeneration following a single-tree selection harvest in a mature natural stand of shortleaf pines in northwest Arkansas. Five years after hardwood control, shortleaf pine seedlings on treated plots were 215 percent taller (P = 0.02) and 242 percent larger (P = 0.01) in groundline diameter than pine seedlings on check plots. Resprouting hardwoods on herbicide injection plots were 42 percent shorter (P < 0.01) and had 72 percent less (P = 0.01) crown area compared with those on manual control plots.
