Abstract

In the coastal plain of North Carolina, data collected over 10 years from burned, disked, or untreated logged tracts showed that the number of 1-year-old seedlings from natural seeding of Pinus taeda L. was directly related to the seed available and inversely related to April-through-June rainfall. With a given amount of seed, more seedlings were established on mineral soil than on burned seedbeds, and more on heavy-textured than on light-textured soils. Milacre stocking of free-to-grow seedlings three years after treatment depended on total milacre stocking in the first year, was reduced in proportion to basal area of residual hardwoods larger than 4.5 inches dbh, and was greater on heavy-textured than on light-textured soils.
