Abstract

This volume presents the experiences of scientists and land managers over a 20-year period in managing southern pine ecosystems. In 17 research papers the authors explore a renewed interest in managing slash pine over its natural and expanded range, but particularly within the southeastern Coastal Plain, with a focus on that species' ability to produce high-grade, high-value lumber.
