Cultivation and Fertilization Speed Early Growth of Planted Southern Pines

Before a landowner in the Gulf Coastal Plain plants southern pines, he normally prepares a site by burning to remove the grass rough. There is interest, however, in additional treatments that will further reduce competition from native vegetation and improve soil fertility. This paper describes the effects of cultivation and fertilization on survival and height growth of longleaf (Pinus palustris Mill.), slash (P. elliottii Engelm.), and lobolly (P. taeda L.) pines in southern Mississippi.
