    Description

    Woody nonpine vegetation, averaging over 6,000 rootstocksiac, was controlled by chain-saw felling, chain-saw felling plus prescribed burning,orby a broadcast herbicide spray to release even-aged loblolly and shortleafpine (Pinus taeda L. and P. echinata Mill.) saplings that became established from natural seedfall on a cutover area. Each method of competition control and an untreated check were replicated three times on 0.2-ac plots in a randomized, complete block design. Five years after release, vegetation composition and percent ground cover were found to be significantly (P<0.05) modified by the silvicultural treatments.
