In a carefully controlled experiment on 4 soil types in the SE Georgia and N. Florida flatwoods region, assessment after 5 growing seasons showed average slash pine (Pinus elliottii) height and d.b.h. on intensively prepared cutover sites (fertilized, chopped, burned, bedded and herbicide-treated) were twice that of the control. Levels of infection with Cronartium fusiforme were higher on intensively treated sites but stocking levels had not been reduced.
