Description

"This location has been a managed pine plantation for over 20 years. The previous plantings were cultivated in beds using standard silvicultural practices. The existing pine plantations at these sites were harvested by the owner and prepared for re-planting. Additional site preparation involved herbicide application, plowing to remove stumps, and planting of trees in raised beds. Areas surrounding these test sites consist of managed stands of pine plantations." (APHIS 2010)
