In January 1993, the Kisatchie National Forest and Southern Research Station began monitoring the effects of various management practices on overstory and midstory trees, shrubs, and understory woody and herbaceous vegetation in several longleaf pine (Pinus palustris Mill.) stands. The monitoring of these stands is part of several Ecosystem Management Projects. These projects address the effects of different seasons of burning, group selection cutting, removal of off-site pine species, and shelterwood management on forest vegetation. One of our goals is to identify common plants that are usually present in longleaf pine forests once the silviculturist's objectives are met.
