Landowners contemplating direct-seeding of slash pine should make their plans at .least eight months before the seed ing season, so as to allow time for seedbed preparation, seed procurement, drainage, hardwood control, and special protection. Of great importance, they will have previously made sure that slash pine is the best species for the proposed site. The most reliable basis for a decision is the satisfactory growth of natural or planted slash stands on similar, nearby sites. It is also necessary to assess the hazards from fusiform rust and glaze ice, especially where slash pine is not a native species.
