Purpose
Approximately 19,043 acres of longleaf pine were planted in Georgia in 2019 alone. Longleaf pine’s silvicultural characteristics, fire adaptations, and tolerance of low fertility sites once made it the dominant pine species on over 90 million acres across the southeastern U.S. Major restoration efforts have been occurring across longleaf pine’s native range during recent decades. The purpose of this workshop is to provide information on several aspects of longleaf pine management.

Participants will:

  • Learn about  longleaf pine establishment factors and ways to maximize survival and early growth.
  • Review cut-over and old-field pine wood and pine straw studies
  • Learn how the effects of various herbicides and application timings affect longleaf pine survival and growth.
  • Learn about prescribed fire and its impacts on longleaf pine survival and growth.
  • Learn about the survival and growth performance of several longleaf pine seed sources planted at six locations in Georgia.
  • Learn about the effects of fertilization on wood growth and pine straw yields on cut-over and old-field sites
  • Discuss the economics of growing longleaf pine on old-field and low fertility cut-over sites

How One Will Benefit
Upon completion of this course, a forest landowner or land manager will be able to make effective silvicultural and economical management decisions on managing longleaf stands with an emphasis on early survival and growth.

Who Should Attend?
Foresters, land managers, forest landowners, pine straw contractors, and others interested in effectively managing their pine stand for pine straw.
