Chapter 3 - Regeneration Methods

Southern pines can be regenerated naturally, by clearcutting, seedtree, shelterwood, or selection reproduction cutting methods, or artificially, by direct seeding or by planting either container or bareroot seedlings. All regeneration methods have inherent advantages and disadvantages; thus, land managers must consider many factors before deciding on a specific method. A regeneration guide is provided to assist resource mangers in determining which method to use, how to employ it, and what results should be expected.
