Because thinning to reduce the hazard of southern pine beetle incidence conflicts with management recommendations for annosus root rot, foresters should be aware of the tradeoffs in areas where both pests are likely to occur.

Handle: RePEc:ags:uerstb Thinning guidelines for southern pines frequently suggest removing 30 to 45 percent of the stand basal area (Farrar ; Morris ). The percentage of the basal area to be left tends to increase with increasing site quality because of greater productive capacity and as the age of intervention.

Producing valuable sawtimber is often the primary objective of landowners managing pine plantations. To qualify as sawtimber, trees should possess a suite of desirable physical characteristics, including having a straight main stem that is limb-free and that has grown to at least 14 inches in diameter at breast height (DBH).

Tree stems lacking one or more of these. Although most discussions about thinning southern pines are about which rows to thin, the focus should be on what comes out of the remaining rows.

Modern equipment, though large, is capable of taking out trees in the rows between cut rows, as in a 5 th or 7 th row thinning. Generally, the further apart the cut rows, the better. control plots were still primarily unmerchantable in size. In the treated plots, all of the thinning treatments at age 10 boosted diameter growth into merchantable sizes (greater than inches d.b.h.), and by age 20 the average stand diameters were within pulpwood sizes.

Loblolly: On the better coastal plain and piedmont pine sites, loblolly is the most productive of the southern pines. Intensive management could call for thinning to about 60 to square feet of basal area per acre as frequently as every five years.

Practical considerations usually limit the number of thinnings to once or twice during a rotation. The southern pine beetle (SPB) is the most destructive forest pest in the South. After a recent SPB outbreak, the US Forest Service (Forest Health Protection and Southern Research Station [SRS.

Thinning is the practice of removing trees from a stand to promote the growth and health of the remaining trees. When carried out correctly, this regulation of stand density helps maintain a healthy forest, improves wildlife habitat, and enhances the field of vision and visual appeal.

Thick thatch often accentuates infestations. Thinning (as a forest management practice) can be defined as removal of trees from a stand to reduce the stand density to improve growth of the residual crop trees, enhance forest health, or recover potential mortality.

There are various reasons why thinning should be employed as a management practice. ELSEVIER Forest Ecology and Management 82 () Forest Ecology and Management Growth in loblolly pine plantations as a function of stand density and canopy properties I Thomas J.

The southern pine beetle (SPB) (Dendroctonus frontalis) is the most destructive insect pest of pine forests in the South (Thatcher and Conner ).

Populations build rapidly during periodic outbreaks and kill large numbers of trees. Average annual losses may exceed million board feet of sawtimber and 20 million cubic feet of growing stock.

Department of Agriculture initiated the Integrated Pest Management Research, Development, and Applications Program for Bark Beetles of Southern Pines. and Dr. Ron Billings, head of TFS Forest Pest Management, reviewed thinning as a preventive measure for the southern pine beetle.

A summary of key points concerning thinning garnered from these workshops is given below. What is thinning. Trees compete for light, moisture, and nutrients.

If the trees become too crowded, growth slows. Besides, intensive management practices may disrupt the balance between common insects pests and their natural enemies triggering outbreaks (Nowak and Berisford, ).

Thinning causes a sudden but temporary change in microclimate and tree physiology (Bartos and Amman, ). Nebeker T.E., Hodges J.D., Karr B.K., Moehring ng practices in southern pines—with pest management recommendations USDA Forest Service Technical Bulletin () Washington, DC.

level and yield as. The best management strategy to reduce losses from the southern pine beetle is to thin Virginia pine before with subsequent thinnings as needed to maintain rapid growth.

Basal areas should be maintained at about ft 2 /acre for high yields of wood fiber. Modern management practices have radically changed the spatial structure of pine forests in the southeastern United States. This study quantifies the modern distribution of loblolly (Pinus taeda) and slash pine (P.

To address management of “pest” stress it will be essential that we develop a better understanding of the repertoire of host defenses, and how genetics and environment interact to control expression of these defense mechanisms.

Thinning to reduce southern pine beetle hazard is recommended when stand basal area approaches square feet/acre or when live crown ratios of dominant and co-dominant trees drop to about Thinning Practices in Southern Pines - With Pest Management Recommendations; Forest Management Practices To Prevent Insect and Disease Damage To.

The following practices are recommended during logging or thinning operations: Use as much of each crop tree as possible. Avoid leaving logging debris in contact with or close to residual pines. Remove harvested timber from a stand as soon as possible, especially during warm weather.

Thinning: an important forest management tool Thinning is the term foresters apply to removal of some trees from a stand to give others more room (and resources) to grow.
